I did WWE Level 1 for one of my boys last year (when he was in Gr. 1) but only got through Week 10. After giving it some thought, it seems wisest for me to simply continue with level 1 with him starting with Week 11 of WWE Level 1 even though he'll be in Grade 2 (I was tempted to put him in Level 2 just so he'd be on grade but I don't want him to miss out on developing important skills taught progressively). I now have another son in Grade 1 this year. Could I use WWE Level 1 for both of them teaching it to them at the same time? Has anyone done this? How did it go? I would have to modify the copy work for my Grade 1 boy this year (for the beginning of the year I might have him do most things orally and copy only one or two words) and he would miss the first 10 weeks since I'm not going to re-do those weeks with Grade 2 son this year.
My concern is when I ask the comprehension questions, they won't both get the chance to answer. I'll have to have them raise their hands when they know the answer and they'll have to take turns being the first to answer. Is this defeating the purpose of one on one learning that homeschooling is ideally supposed to provide?
I want to do the two boys together because looking ahead, I wonder if I'll be able to sustain teaching WWE Levels 1 and 2 in 2017-2018. My son who is going into Gr. 1 this year is bright but just not where the Grade 2 kiddo is in terms of writing/fine motor skills/copywork ability.
If it's best, I will separate them and not force this. I'm a mom of 6 kiddos (ages 1-12) and am aiming to make things doable for myself now and going forward so I can sustain homeschooling.
I would appreciate advice. I know by 3rd grade they'll be reading the stories/text independently so no matter what at some point, the lesson being all on me will change.
