homeschool

We have come a long way in the short time we have been homeschooling!  We have finally found our niche, at least for now :)  Charlotte Mason methodology fits our family well!  Children learn and Momma’s teach differently and you will have to find for your self what works best for your family. That’s one really cool aspect of homeschooling, you can cater to your children’s needs and they can learn more effortlessly. Here’s our Curriculum Choices for 2014-2015

Family Learning Cycle

My Father’s World’s unique INVESTIGATE Multi-age Family Learning Cycle is designed for children through 8th grade to be taught together using the same program. Bible, geography, history, literature, science, music appreciation, and art activities can be enjoyed by a range of ages. Our Teacher’s Manuals provide guidance for grade level expectations as needed. A 7th grader will complete assignments more thoroughly than a 3rd grader while using many of the same resources. The Multi-age Family Learning Cycle keeps the family together when possible and assures that the parent is only teaching one complete curriculum package each year.

Our five year-long programs begin with a one-year foundation in geography and cultures followed by four years of chronological history. A 2nd or 3rd grader continues in the cycle for 6-7 years, repeating material previously learned in 2nd or 3rd grade at an advances level.

 

We also use Character Development materials for all ages and grades from Character First  www.characterfirsteducation.com/c/shop.php
