A few months ago I opened my mailbox and found a My Father’s World curriculum catalog inside. I was intrigued, so I opened it up and fell in love. If it is possible to fall in love with a curriculum anyway. After talking it over with my husband, I ordered the My Father’s World kindergarten curriculum and cannot wait to get started this fall. 

My Father's World Kindergarten Curriculum

Are you curious why I’m so excited about a curriculum? Here are just some of the reasons why I really hope My Father’s World will be a perfect fit for our family.

God-Centered

One of the reasons I want to homeschool is to give my children a Christian education. My Father’s World is God-centered. I love that when Bug starts kindergarten this fall he is going to learn all about how God created the world while he learns Kindergarten skills.

The Charlotte Mason Method

“My Father’s World” combines the Charlotte Mason method with classical education and incorporates a biblical worldview. I’m a crazy Charlotte Mason mama. I actually first thought I wanted to homeschool after discovering Charlotte Mason. While I love the Charlotte Mason method, I don’t necessarily want to follow it 100%. I like that “My Father’s World” incorporates unit studies, which is similar to what I have been doing this year while we do preschool. And we will have plenty of opportunities for nature study and fun things!

Daily Lesson Plans

As a new homeschooler, and someone who knows no homeschoolers in real life, I like the idea of having everything laid out for me. I know as I grow as a homeschooling mom, this will probably change. For now, the idea of planning everything is extremely overwhelming.  “My Father’s World” includes a schedule and I love schedules!

Complete My Father’s World Kindergarten Curriculum

The My Father’s World kindergarten curriculum is a complete curriculum. I do think we may add some things here and there and we will use books from our library, but everything is included for our year! Plus, doesn’t it just look like fun?

Multi-Age Curriculum

I currently have three children and may possibly have more in the future. I love that once my kids get to 2nd grade I can buy one curriculum package and just add in additional language arts and math for each student. We can all do school together!

Supports Missions

My Father’s World supports Bible translation around the world. That’s pretty cool.

We are ordering the kindergarten program and the toddler program. Bug will be 5 in October and Sis will be 3 in September. Bug is an eager learner. He is already learning to write and read, so everything I am reading says we will be ok to start kindergarten this fall. I plan to use the toys in the toddler program during Tot School for Sis. I’m hoping they will keep her busy while I do some more focused work with Bug. Of course all three of my kids will be involved with our science projects and read aloud time. I’m so excited!

  1. I am a first-time homeschooling mama this year and have decided to go with MFW for Kindergarten, too. I feel in love with it for all the reasons you mentioned. And Charlotte Mason method? The more I read about it, the more I {heart} it, too!

  2. I plan on using MFW! I found some of the curriculum books at a thrift store for a dollar and snatched them up. Thanks for sharing this with the Thrive @ Home community, Joanie!

    1. Oh, wow! How lucky to find them at a thrift store! We just got our curriculum in the mail yesterday. I have to hide it from the kids until it’s time to start school. They are sooo excited! Thanks for having me at Thrive @ Home, Jenni!

  3. Hi Joanie, I too have used MFW. The older kids loved the activity book and all the little extras that come along with the curriculum. Now my little ones love using their curriculum too, but they just think they’re playing all day, (but I know they’re learning).

  4. Hi Joanie! I just discovered your blog and really enjoyed this post! We use MFW also. How did this year turn out for your family? I would love to hear about it. God bless!
