    FMOR tips?

    Waving at the SC mommas!

    We're getting ready to start Cottage School next week.

    My boys pace slightly above the published SC plans, so we're doing FMoR this fall.

    Does anyone have SC type tips and tricks for teaching/reviewing FMoR?
    Plans for 2020-21

    Year 10 of homeschooling with MP

    DD1 - 25 - Small Business owner with a STOREFRONT
    DD2 - 14 - 9th grade - HLS Cottage School/MPOA - equestrian
    DS3 - 12 - 5A Cottage School - soccer
    DS4 - 12 - 5A Cottage School -soccer
    DD5 - 8 - 3A, Cottage School -equestrian and Irish dance
    DS6 - 6 - MP K - home with Momma

    When my children and I studied FMOR we read through the stories more than once. You might pre-read at home before the story is encountered in class or reread at home afterward.

    We used visuals such as making good use of the maps and examining the illustrations. We also read easy historical fiction, such as Detectives in Togas and Mystery of the Roman Ransom, to gain a better sense of the era. (My daughter says you simply must read both. They go together like peanut butter and jelly.)

    We did not have FMOR flash cards back then, but you do! Those will help.

    If you create any new tips along the way this year, please share!
