  • Students learn to read and write short vowel words.
  • By mid-year they are reading very simple stories.
  • As part of our "learning to love to read" focus, for each unit children enjoy a children's literature book related to the theme plus related activities.
Math
  • Our informal, integrated approach helps children easily learn foundational math concepts.
  • Many skills are woven into the lessons as students cut an apple in half, measure and compare the lengths of dinosaurs and whales, and order leaves by size.
  • All typical kindergarten goals are taught, including:
    • Counting objects
    • Writing numerals
    • Preparing and understanding charts and graphs
    • Comparing, classifying, sequencing
    • Understanding ordinal numbers, fractions (whole/half), clocks, money
    • An introduction to addition and subtraction.
Bible, Science, Creative Thinking, Children's Literature, and Art
  • These subjects are integrated into the 26 easy-to-teach thematic units.
  • Each week focuses on one alphabet letter and one corresponding science topic.
    • For example, in the first lesson, "S-s-sun":
    • Learn that, like the sun, Jesus is the Light of the World
    • Study about the sun, construct and use a sundial
    • Observe and chart grapes as they become raisins
    • Paint a sun and listen to a funny book about shadows
Character Development
  • This special focus is integrated into each unit.
  • For example:
    • The turtle lesson teaches, "I don't quit -- I persevere!"
    • The horse lesson teaches, "I obey right away."
    • The zebra lesson teaches, "I can't hide anything from God."

The first time I read through the lessons I started getting teary-eyed . . . it is such a gift that someone out there had the time and passion to create something so valuable for the rest of us! There are so many values and experiences you want to give to your children, but the pace of life doesn't usually give you the time to think it through and plan and research out all the details. This package puts it all at your fingertips! Fun, exploration, good balance of learning and play, values taught in a relaxed way, and more. Wow. Thank you! It's great!

You have done an amazing job putting together the sweetest things for our little kids. Thank you!

I like the simplicity of the activities. I like that the projects are easy and I do not need to buy lots of supplies. I LOVE the books.

I like that this teaches character and it is not overwhelming. I had [a different] curriculum I was going to use, but I am glad to be using this instead. This is much easier and less work, but allows my son to feel like he is doing school. This really does not take too much time. The crafts are easy and the books are all excellent choices.

This curriculum seems to go along well with "habit training" - getting my son used to the idea that he has to follow directions and that I have certain activities preplanned for him. I think this is preparing him well for school in the coming years.

I love the great books included in the curriculum. Such a nice selection of books! It's also a great pace and a lovely amount of time-not too much, no stress, not killing his love of what he's learning. I applaud you for that! Thank you so much!

I like being able to open lesson plans and follow a well thought out program. It is easy for me to adjust a program, but it is much harder for me to invent one. My college training in Science and Engineering did not really prepare me to teach preschool. Thank you for all your hard work because I have more time to spend teaching and engaging my children with less stress and frustration for all of us.

One thing MFW has done for me is really hold my hand and help me do those things that I desire to do with my kids, but never really have the time to plan and prepare.

Thank you for offering this program. It is giving me the tools and resources to be intentional with developing our relationship and also working godly character traits into her life.

Tina P.

We are just loving your program. :)

My daughter loves all the books and wants to read them over and over throughout the day. :) we give them a huge thumbs up. :)

This program has helped me carve out little bits of time just for my daughter and she really looks forward to this new routine. :) She eagerly runs for her cards and activities. :) It is a huge blessing. :)

Thank you. :)

Leah M.

I just love that the approach with this program is gentle, and yet has really impacted and helped my son's learning in a way that he loves. It takes all the ideas of what a child loves to do, and incorporates it into fun learning units. I have seen this with colors, numbers, Bible stories, and pre-writing skills. I am glad you can create something that is filled with learning skills, and keep it interesting and fun for the child.
