It appears the author suggests:

CW Homer weeks 1-10

Beginning Poetry weeks 1-12

CW Homer weeks 11-30

Beginning Poetry weeks 13-24

CW Homer weeks 31-40

 

Any wisdom on this? I'm nervous to switch to poetry soon as we are just hitting our stride with Homer (just finished week 8).

They don't want you to burn out. If you are doing ok, just keep going. You don't have to do poetry or you can start it when you need a break from Homer.

BTW, good job. We didn't ever hit our stride in Homer and I gave up. Very proud of you!!!

That schedule is just a suggestion. There's no reason you can't do a couple/few more weeks of Homer to solidify your happy rut before starting Poetry.

I used CW Homer eons ago with my oldest two kids. We didn't use CW poetry, but I did tuck occasional breaks from Homer around here and there.

Awe, thanks! I have the teachers guide and the student books so that helps. If I had just the main book I'd be up a creek!

 

Oddly enough, my son told me last night that he'd love to switch to poetry in two weeks. So I guess we shall see when the books arrive.

We are finishing Homer A before doing Poetry A. We are on week 19 now. I'm eager for a change. 😀

My dd loved when we switched to poetry as she found the work load a bit easier.

We did poetry at the end, as mentioned above -- Homer A, then Poetry A for one year's writing.  But it sounds like your child's up for a switch: hurrah!
