Re: Singapore 5a schedule?

I am in the same boat. I really need the Singapore 4A/4B schedule, but we're doing Bigger and it's not in there. If you wouldn't mind sharing what your schedule was with this, I would sure appreciate it. Most say that one lesson per day is about right, but I don't know for sure.

Re: Clarification and info

With science, there are experiments twice a week. Then for history, each week you'll do the following: geography activity, timeline, art, vocab (not really hands on), and a history activity.

Re: Can someone help me with DITHOR?

I was super confused about Dithor too, until I bought the manual and looked through it (just yesterday in depth). I ADORE it. I love how it formats each day of their reading. Some days they just read their chosen books, some days we discuss their book, and some days they do parts of the Student book...

Picking Options in DITHOR for each genre

I picked up Dithor today and I am in LOVE! I love to read and so do my children, so I can't wait to begin this program. I only have to wait 4 LONG months..... Anyway, I noticed that on day 15, the teacher is supposed to choose which option the child/ren do after they have read their genres. Do any o...

Re: English 3 Beginning Wisely with Bigger

Thanks, everyone. I think it worked out to about 4 lessons per week for us too.

English 3 Beginning Wisely with Bigger

Does anyone have a schedule for Beginning Wisely with Bigger? I realize it says to use English 2, but my son is going to do Bigger next year and he’s ready for English 3. It isn’t listed as an alternative in the back of the Bigger Manual.
