MFW Exploring Cultures and Countries Preparation and Week 1

It is the beginning of another school year. It looks a little different this year as this time, we have two in high school and the younger two are 5th and 7th grade.

Barring any arguments about what or how school will be done, we should conquer all and learn this year once again.

We are using My Father’s World- Exploring Cultures and Countries, Ancient History and Literature as well as US history. This will be our 6th year using My Father’s World.

I am working hard to keep things very simple and focusing on learning, but yet, not stress about it to an extreme.

It seems there has to be a good balance between overloading students and lacking discipline.

 

We have finished Week 1 and are onto Week 2…

I feel very unprepared this year, but am going slowly, but surely forward!

  1. Looks good to me :). We have our materials in boxes under our dining room window and I think everything is sorted where it should be.
