Product Description:

Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also incorporate math, science, Bible, art, character development, creative thinking and childrens literature. There are 26 thematic units total, with each unit taking five days to complete. Daily lessons will take 60-90 minutes.

Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from Gods creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation. (For example, S is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world.) Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. Each unit also has a recommended children's literature title. Math concepts include counting, writing numerals, charts and graphs, sequencing, comparing, classifying, ordinal numbers, fractions (whole and half), time, money, and simple addition/subtraction. Science topics match the illustrations on the alphabet flashcards and consist of objects that can be observed in nature.

The Limited Ed. Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student sheets; alphabet flashcards, Lauri lower-case alphabet puzzle; What Really Happened to the Dinosuars?; For the Children's Sake; Cuisenaire Rods; Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book; Say Hello to Classical Music; an inflatable globe and the MFW Kindergarten Literature Collection with 26 stories to be used with the units. Ant Hill and Butterfly Garden kits are not included in the kits but highly recommended for customers in the 48 states. Both insect kits are also available from us separately.

Category Description for My Father's World:

Combining elements of Charlotte Mason-based curriculum, classical curriculum and unit studies, My Father's World offers complete curriculum packages that include easy-to-use, Biblically-based daily lesson plans along with popular curriculum resources. Curriculum packages for ages 2-3, PK, K and 1st grade are all-inclusive, offering all materials you need to teach that grade level. Packages for upper grades are "entry-level" packages for the first program at that grade range. (If you complete one of these packages and wish to move to the next level, you will need to purchase the more customized follow-up materials directly from My Father's World.) Curriculum packages for Grades 2 and up do not include language arts, math or foreign language, so you can either add your current favorite program or follow recommendations from MFW.

Curriculum packages for ages 2-3, PK, K and Grades 2-3 encompass the "Discover" phase. This level emphasizes skills typically taught in the grammar stage and focuses on learning about God, His world, reading and writing, and an overview of world history. Lesson plans and materials for ages 2-3, PK, K, and 1 cover basic early childhood skills, beginning language and math and lots of hands-on activities. Grades 3-8, e


Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also touch on math, science, Bible, art, creative thinking and children's literature. In all, there are 166 daily lessons in the program. Both Reading Plan and Activity Guides are used for five days; only the Activity Guide is used for the sixth. Each lesson takes five days to complete, and 60-90 minutes daily.

Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual, and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from God's creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation ("S" is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world. Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated into the Reading Plan, as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. The Reading Plan contains five daily lesson plans for each of the 26 lessons. Day 1 is an introduction to the letter via textured letter, flashcard, "A-a-Apple Song," worktext page, and other "hands-on" letter activity. On Day 2, children sing the Short Vowel Song (starting in lesson 4) verses containing letters they've studied, work their handwriting page, do a letter activity, and practice sound discrimination. More reinforcement activities including letter sound practice, singing the letter song, and blending (starting in lesson 6), follow on Day 3 along with working a cut & paste worksheet, playing letter sound Bingo, and a Number Review. Day 4 continues with singing the special A-B-C song, and several more blending activities (starting in lesson 6). Children also complete a Word List Page (starting in lesson 6), and construct a Cut and Paste or Story page from their worksheets (starting in lesson 9). Day 5 provides final review and reinforcement activities including songs, blending activities, drawing pages, and worksheet page.

The flashcards used throughout the Reading Plan have illustrations corresponding to the science topic for the day, as well. Lessons for these activities are contained separately in 26 activity guides focusing on science, Bible, math, art, creative thinking and children's literature. Like the Reading Plan, these are broken down into daily lessons. Day 1 is a introductory and fact-gathering day for the topic, along with presentation of the Biblical concept. Days 2-5 develop the topic using different activities. The unit on Rocks, for example, has children collect rocks and study Bible verses which use rocks as illustrations (Deut. 32:4, James 1:22, Matt 7:24-27). There's also a chorus of a hymn to sing. On Day 3, children count the rocks and classify them in several different ways, then put them in order from large to small, then practice ordinal positioning. After this, students construct a badge from paper (the badges are a recurring activity, giving students a visual remembrance and record of each letter/topic they study throughout the curriculum). Day 4 has them building a model volcano from clay and erupting it. On Day 5, students conduct an experiment with rocks, following the Scientific Method.

New for 2017 is the 2nd edition of the teacher's manual. Previous versions had six days of activities (with lower-key activities on the sixth day) which have now been reorganized into five days of activities. New edition also includes new Christmas and Fruit of the Spirit units, some new activities and an updated library booklist.

I've heard nothing but wonderful things about MFW kindergarten and can't wait to start with my child. As of 7/17, the differences in this set and the one found on MFW website are as follows:<br /><br />Missing- Seven Blind Mice<br />Extra- Oliver, If the Dinosaurs Came back<br /><br />With either the Deluxe set from MFW or this set from Rainbow Resource, you will need to purchase the ant mountain and butterflies.

This came highly recommended by other homeschooling moms.

I am homeschooling my youngest daughter (K) and decided to go with My Father's World. We already have a butterfly garden and so this was a good deal for this package.

Jennifer T on Jul 31, 2018
Is the written description or the photo accurate of what items are included? The photo includes "What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs" and "Seven Blind Mice". The written description doesn't include those, but does list "If the Dinosaurs Came Back" and "Oliver (I Can Read Level 1).
A shopper on Aug 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These packages come directly from My Father's World as a complete unit. They make changes in the books from time to time including the one where Oliver was replaced with Seven Blind Mice and If the Dinosaurs Came Back was replaced with What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs. The books the customer recieved should match the booklist in the beginning of the Teacher's Manual. If your books do not match the Teacher's Manual, please contact our customer service department.
How many are there total? Like all in the picture? Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You get everything pictured. It's a lot. Totally worth it!
Is the the deluxe edition? Is it the new 2017 2nd edition?
Wendy H on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The A-Z Limited Edition Kindergarten package that we carry includes the Deluxe package items minus the butterfly garden and the ant hill (we carry those and they are available separately). In addition, it includes the kindergarten literature collection. The Limited Edition is a special package put together by MFW just for re-sellers like Rainbow. It does include the 2017 2nd edition.
Can i get additional student sheets with this?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, not from us. My Father's World has only given us the kits for the Kindergarten program.

So far so good
First of all, rainbow resource center was great to work with. I needed our curriculum shipped overseas and had an odd request on how they package it and they were happy to cooperate. My only complaint was that the tracking link they sent me. But our package arrived relatively quickly with no issue.
We just finished our first week of My Father's World. So far, so good. My 5 year old is enjoying making her creation book and my 2 year old likes joining in on the fun too. There were several things that the teacher needs to cut out and organize before you begin but not an overwhelming amount. So far the lesson plans are easy to follow and engaging for the student. Hopefully the rest of the year will go just as well as our first week.
