Classical or Charlotte Mason Homeschool Curriculum Option

What do you get when you mix a Classical and Charlotte Mason homeschool style of teaching with a biblical worldview? My Father's World homeschool curriculum...


As a homeschooling family with three children, we found it difficult to keep up with three totally different curriculum levels and we wanted to teach our kids together as much as possible so that they would share the experience with one another.

We discovered My Father's World curriculum and used it for the first time last year. We highly recommend this curriculum! It combines a biblical worldview with Charlotte Mason homeschool and classical-style teaching. It is so easy to use...very well planned with little preparation necessary. My Father's World provides the framework and the resources and lets you spend more time teaching and enjoying the journey with your children.

Our first year was "Exploring Countries and Cultures" during which we learned about people and places all over the world. My 6th grader started the year being able to identify just a few countries of the world and, by the end of the year, she could identify over 100! They now know more about the world than most adults I know. We are excited to begin another year with My Father's World in just a few weeks!

Cheri, thanks so much for sharing how My Father's World is working with your family. I am sure parents who are looking for a bible-based curriculum with a classical or a Charlotte Mason homeschool approach will find your thoughts very helpful. Happy Homeschooling! Blessings, Heather :)

Christian Homeschooling Programs: My Father's World

My family has enjoyed using My Father's World Christian homeschool program for kindergarten and first grade and we will be using it this coming year as well.

I like that it covers everything and is all easily laid out for me, the teacher, so I don’t have to do too much planning on my own. Yet, it is adaptable so you can tweek it where needed to fit your family.

I love the biblical focus and how the biblical lesson is often connected to other subjects being taught at the same time. I also appreciate the educational philosophy that the curriculum is based on.

For the early years, they really try to limit the amount of worksheet type work, instead accomplishing the same thing with less effort. I also like the bit of Charlotte Mason style that's hidden within.

If you have the chance to listen to any of the author's lectures at a convention or by ordering CD copies, they are very helpful and encouraging! Also, if you visit their website, www.mfwbooks.com, check out the message boards - very helpful question/answers from parents who are using the materials.

Great review, Paige! Thanks for reviewing MFW; your experience will be very helpful for other parents looking for quality Christian homeschooling programs for their family. Happy Homeschooling! Heather :)

This is our first year as a homeschooling family. I chose to use My Father's World because it has a day by day guide to each subject. It has been such a blessing for me, as I am a parent that needs a little more structured curriculum. I would recommend this curriculum to anyone new to homeschooling. It has been AMAZING!

Yay! Congratulations on completing your first year of homeschooling, Charity! Thanks for sharing why you chose My Father's World for your first grade homeschool curriculum - your thoughts are appreciated and will be helpful to other new homeschooling parents. Blessings, Heather :)

We love MFW also
by: S. H.

I believe you have come across one of the best curriculums to use. What a blessing that you began it in your first year of homeschooling. We tried several curriculums for several years until finding MFW and falling in love with it. We just finished up the Rome to Reformation year. It is well written. We have thoroughly enjoyed each year. We've also enjoyed talking with Mr. Hazelet and listening to him speak at homeschool conference.

God bless
