happypamama Posted February 25, 2012 Share Posted February 25, 2012 We'll be using SOTW1 next year, for our second and fifth graders, and the second grader will be working through WWE, either the latter part of Level 1 or the early part of Level 2. I want to have him do copywork, narrations, and dictations based on our history readings. Originally, I had intended that we'd read the SOTW chapter on Monday (and do the map page, and the coloring page if they want), and then Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, we'd read supplemental books and do projects. With WWE, I was anticipating that being a Monday-Thursday thing as well. Fridays are co-op/errand days or "fun school" (games, etc.) days, no formal work, so I don't want to carry WWE over onto Fridays. However, in looking at WWE, it looks like that plan would have us reading the SOTW chapter on Monday, but the first narration wouldn't come until Tuesday. So he would not be able to do the narrations based on SOTW. Would you: -Move SOTW to Tuesday, and use Monday for a supplemental picture book? That would have the advantage of a picture book providing a little preview to pique interest, and then he could do the narrations based on SOTW. -Keep SOTW on Monday (because it makes a nice thing for Monday morning, as it's already here and ready to go, even if I don't get a lot of time over the weekend to plan), but have him use a picture book for the Tuesday narration? -Move SOTW to Tuesday, do narrations based on that, and use Wednesday, Thursday, and the following Monday for supplemental books and projects? (This seems the least likely to be successful, tbh.) -Something else? (What?) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
