MFW Kindergarten: U For Us



This week for ds4’s Kindergarten the theme was Uu for Us and the five senses.

IMG_2890 We made a cup phone and learned about how sound travels.

IMG_2897 Ds came up with lots of other uses for the cup phones lol. 

IMG_2944 We made a super cute flower with a perfume soaked cotton ball when we studied smell.

IMG_2892 He did a worksheet about what not to touch and made stick puppets of the five senses.  We spent a morning outside just sitting and listening.  We heard all kinds of new sounds…well, just sounds we don’t normally listen for really.

IMG_2889 He did great with a review of the letter sounds we have learned so far.  I love that these cards we make each week are self checking…he is really proud when he turns the card over and sees that he answered correctly.

IMG_2935 We also made a life sized portrait and had fun coloring it in.  Sure seems as if we have a table for nothing but piling junk on…we did most of our school on the floor this week lol!

Update:  I am including this in Mishmash Maggie’s Weekly Homeschool Highlights.


  1. I really wish we had MFW when my kids were younger. IT looks like so much fun.

  2. Oh, it looks like a lot of fun at your house! BTW, have you joined Lainie's (creator of the MFW Blogroll) Weekly Reports? She created it so that all MFW users can share each week. It's been soooo fun and helpful for me to be able to see what the other years in MFW are like. There's a link on her blog if interested.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  3. I have a 3 year old and I plan on using this curriculum for him when he is 5. I actually bought it from someone already and I'm so excited for him to turn 5, well you know...sort of. He can stay little a while longer. Anyway, this looks so fun! I can't wait to have my own adventures with Kindergarten. MFW is so awesome. I just love it. Thanks for visiting my blog too. Be blessed.

  4. What a fun week! I am so sad that we will never do MFW kindergarten. Thank you for sharing with those of us that can live vicariously through you!

    Looking good :)
