Breaks

Today is our last day with ETC 1 and MSU primer. Would it be ok to take a break for a bit, or should I go ahead and start him on the next ones? I've made him take "tests" I made to make sure he has mastered the skills and he has. Part of  me is uncomfortable with taking a break because i'm affraid it'll be hard to get him to start again, but part of me is saying a break is ok because he blew through both programs in just over a month (when we started he knew a lot of it). What would you do?

We are almost done with ETC 1 (lesson 9 this week) and we are taking a break for a couple of weeks to work on reading the BOB Books level one with less sounding out and more fluency. Also, we finish addition up to the 4 family and instead of starting subtraction right a way, we will firm up our addition facts for a couple of weeks.

They are easy readers that start with the simplest words and grow with your reader. We loved them! They come with a sticker sheet and tracking booklet.  We started with the foundation set - not the "Earliest  readers"

As for the break, I would probably take the rest of this week off but start again on Monday. It's a reward for a great job but not  TOO long of a break.
