Our Curriculum- My Father's World

This is our first year using My Father's World and so far, we love it (currently on day 33)! We have used other home school curricula in the past, which were all good, but we chose MFW mainly because it's saturated with God's Word. Children are taught from the Biblical worldview, based on classical education approach (Charlotte Mason), which involve a great amount of hands on, exploratory learning experiences.

Grade K, "My Father's World A to Z":
