    FMOR just one semester?

    Looking at FMOR; it is just one semester? So does my rising fifth grader, who will be done with Greek Myths, then have no history class in the fall semester? I suppose we could use that time to have her learn typing! :-)

    Something to consider is that, while FMOR is done in a semester, it is the same amount of material that is in the homeschool plans spread over a year. So they work twice as fast and finish in half the time. You might consider taking another of the “once a week” subjects such as Christian Studies, science, or geography and doubling up on that first semester. So you pick one of those subjects and do it twice a week, once where it is scheduled and once where you would normally do FMOR. Then that subject is finished by second semester and you have that extra time in your schedule for the double pace of the online class.

      Ah that is a really good point; thanks for cluing me in!
