Mr. E joyfully completed the first level in his math program today. He is now officially done with Primer and will start Alpha this coming Monday. Might as well give him a few days off for all the good work he's been doing! It also works out better for us to start new lessons on Monday around here, so that's what we'll be doing. Most weeks when things are going smoothly, ie, the math concepts are clicking and we don't get bogged down, the children will do pages A and D on Monday after we go over the new lesson and they watch the DVD instruction (they really seem to like this and it is extra reinforcement). Tuesday they do pages B and E, Wednesday is pages C and F, Thursday is Test day and Friday we are math-free.
I have no doubts that Mr. E is going to zip through Alpha pretty quickly. He really enjoys math and can do so much in his head already that I'm afraid he might catch up to and potentially pass Miss A. We'll see.
For now, we'll go at his pace and see how it goes!
Congrats Mr. E! You're doing a super job!
