I'm trying to finish scheduling all of our curriculum and lesson plans for the year...but I'm stumped as to how to plan and schedule our reading/spelling & math.
For reading/spelling we will be using All About Reading and following it with All About Spelling.
Both of my girls are the same "grade" but one is a bit more "advanced" in these subjects than the other. I hate saying it that way but it's late and my brain isn't working at the moment.
With one girl I think she'd be able to handle a lesson of reading a day and be successful with it.
With my second daughter, I know that a lesson a day would be too much for her. I want to go at her speed so that she learns and can succeed in reading. Thanks to public school she is convinced that she can't and I know it will just rock her world when she is able to sound out words and finally "get it".
But how do I schedule and plan when I don't necessarily know how long it will take her? I want to set goals for her to meet and have SOME expectations but I don't want it to be too much.
How do I schedule something when I don't yet know how fast is too fast and how slow is too slow?
For math, it's really the same problem. We will be using Math U See.
The first daughter I plan on covering a lesson a week (which will probably be too slow for her actually but that's what I'm thinking right now)
For my second daughter I'm not sure how much I should schedule.
So, I guess my question is: how do you schedule and plan lessons when you don't know how slow/fast you should go?
