What does a typical day look like with MCT?


Recommended Posts

I have posted about MCT before. I see how much people love it, especially for gifted kids. I was planning on skipping formal grammar until 5th grade and using JAG, but I just want to know exactly who MCT works. Hopefully, the creator will be at the Greenville HS convention this year. I just don't get how the program actually works from the samples online!

Here is what works for us:

Practice Town, 1 sheet (about 5 minutes), 5/week

Caesar's English about 20 minutes, 4/week

Building Poetry about 20 minutes, 1/week

Grammar Town 20-30 minutes, 5/week until finished

When Grammar Town is finished, we will go to

Paragraph Town 20-30 minutes, 5/week


I do not map out where we will be each week. We recently started the Town level and I am aiming to finish in June. We used a similar approach for the Island level. When I finished the vocabulary book first, I just started doing poetry more often. We do "Tuesday Tea and Poetry" so we save poetry for once a week.:)
