# How many "lessons" or "units" per week?

How many units (or new concepts, rather) do your kids do per week? I wrote my lesson plan for the first 3 weeks for just one unit (in Saxon math 5/4) but it seems like he will be bored and floy thru it.

Our Math U See is one lesson per week. It is 3 days of the new concept (lesson A,B,C) and 3 days of the new concept WITH mixed review.(Lesson D,E,F)   I do it in a way that they mix up the new and review A&D, B&E, C&F....

DS2 uses Teaching Textbooks and each day is a new spiral lesson.

With Math, I don't really plan it. We just start at page one and go. Sometimes, my kids fly through it, and sometimes we hit a road bump.

ohhhhhhhhh i get it!!! you dont need to do the suppliment if your child doesnt need it, and change it up a bit , by putting some problems on the chalkboard/white board    doing them out loud etc! makes it funner! and helps the child deal with change, not be stuck doing it one way only

I just took whatever curriculum I'm using for that subject and divided it up by a 32 week school year. In history he will be doing 2 chapters some weeks and only one chapter other weeks depending on how long the chapter is or if it's something I want to put more emphasis on. I did notice that most of the curriculum are geared towards a 32 week set up. Some the lessons last 2 weeks, on those I made sure not to divide up the lesson by a break, Christmas spring break etc HTH

We do core subjects (computer programs - AOG's Switched on Schoolhouse-math, social science, science and language arts) every day (M-F) plus cursive practice. Then I let Ash take the lead, which wears me out!  She does music, art, woodworking and extra math on IXL.com (she loves math) as she wills, or we do cooking or go swimming at the Civic Center.
