King Alfred Academy Posted July 18, 2008 Share Posted July 18, 2008 I have been going over this way too much and need some input. This is my first year using TOG and we are going to spread each week over two doing it 4 days a week. I have a LG (tag along) and a LG/UG. I am open to suggestion and opinions but please be gentle on this newbie:o... Week 1 Day 1...Read History Core Day 2...Geography Continue reading History Core Day 3...DS7 read the LG lit. to me and DS5 DS7 complete SAP Day 4....Begin working on project...DH is helping with this Week2 Day 1....Listen to SOTW audio Do a coloring page or some other "paper" activity (Lapbook?) Day 2...Supplemental Reading or the suggested Read Aloud or Lapbooking Day 3...Supplemental Reading or the suggested Read Aloud or Lapbooking Day 4...Work on/complete project I will also be adding in the Writing Aids towards the end of the unit. Here is a secret...I hate reading aloud. Hate it. But, there are so many great books to read for this time, that I am going to try and suck it up. Did you find the suggested read aloud (Famous Men of the Middle Ages) to be beneficial for this stage? DH is going to help with the read alouds but he would like to read more narrative storied than informational. I thought about having him read from the D stage lit. I am also going to have DS7 read the UG lit. suggestions during his quiet time. I may or may not orally ask him some of the questions from the SAP. he is totally capable of reading the books. His nose is always in a book way above his grade level. So what do you think? Am I missing anything? Am I doing too much? Any suggestions for my days 2&3 on the second week? Thanks so much for your input!:D:D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
