Hello! I am considering switching from MFW to SCM in August ... at that time I'll have a DD7 (Second Grade), DD5 and DS5 (Kindergarten, each with very special needs) and DS2 (tagging along). I'm going to stick with MFWK for my middle two and B4FIAR for my littlest, along with Sonya's recommendations for the Early Years books. All that said ... I don't know where I should start my oldest.
For those of you who did not start with SCM in first grade, which module did you choose to start with, and why? Or, maybe in hindsight if you started with Module 1 you might wish you had started in another time period?
I am leaning toward beginning with Module 5 for second and Module 6 for third, then she's had a solid foundation in American and World history. At that point, my middle two will be in second (I think I will do MFW1 with them, as well, as I love their phonics and Bible very much) and they would all fold in together in Module 1 that year.
I would like to supplement with TruthQuest, as well, so it seems more natural to start with American History since the TQ guide is geared for youngers with the Amer Hist. Also, it's just such a neat time period to explore.
Hmm ... I would be so thankful for your wise words and suggestions.
