Question about ordering books for DITHOR

Post by DanaFL » Mon Apr 27, 2015 8:34 pm

I'm compiling my order for CTC, and am planning on ordering the Girl Interest package of books that goes along with CTC. I am wondering, for DITHOR, am I to use THESE books, OR am I to also order say, the Level 4/5 Girl Interest Book Pack listed back in the DITHOR section?
TIA!
Dana

You'll order the 4/5 book package. The Girl Interest is for you to read to her.

Mumkins is right. The deluxe packages are for storytime, where the parent reads to the child. DITHOR is where the child reads the books. In Preparing-MtMM, DITHOR is scheduled 3 days a week. If you follow that schedule, you would complete 4-5 genres in a year. So, you complete one workbook after 2 guides. Some families will assign the other 4-5 books in a book pack as free reading over breaks. Others just continue with those books the next year.
