    5 Day vs 2 Day JrK

    Forgive me if this has already been discussed. Late to the party and all...

    First, yay! 5 day JrK! Next, is it the same as 2 day, just spread out? I noticed a few of the books were different. Last, the intended age range is still 4 yrs old, correct?

    The new one definitely has Myself and Others added to it. I'm so excited about the 5 day!

      Enigma,

      You're not late to the party at all! The five-day JrK has several additions. Myself and Others 1 & 2 Cores are included and not optional like the two-day plans. There is also additional poetry, Bible stories, activities, and crafts. The alphabet study has been spread out through the week. And it is still intended for four year olds, for the year before Kindergarten.

      You can see a full description of the additions on the "description" tab of the Five-Day JrK product page.

      I hope that helps. We are very excited about this new five-day JrK as well!

        I ordered The Llama Who Had No Pajama after seeing it in the up until recently very hard-to-find 5-day Jr. K kit. It is so cute and packed full of poems about animals and insects. It is a great anthology for any child moving through the MP primary sciences.

        Hey, MP, if you all decide to sell a list of the poems you specifically use in this book, please let us know. I'm halfway through SC C (the Jr. K equivalent), and I would love to sync these adorable poems in with the rest of our year.

          We're so glad you like The Llama Who Had No Pajama! And we wouldn't make you pay for the list of poems we use; they're attached to this forum post.

          HTH, and Happy Thanksgiving!

                Good afternoon,

                I don't believe SC Level B of C will be affected in any way by the 5-day version of Junior Kindergarten, but I've reached out to Cheryl Swope to confirm.

                A charter version of the 5-day Jr. K Curriculum Manual will be created eventually, but we don't have an estimated release date at this time.

                HTH!

                  Hello again,

                  I checked with Cheryl Swope and she will not be changing Level B or C because of the new 5-day version of Junior Kindergarten. Those levels, like all Simply Classical levels, were created for a different audience and address different needs than those of our "regular" Junior Kindergarten program, 2-day or 5-day. The 5-day version is simply an alternative to the 2-day version, an alternative which, due to the increased number of days, happens to include some additional content. Does that help?

                      Thank you, MP for making this! I have a couple of years before little M will need it, but I am already looking forward to it. Since everyone else does 5 day school, it’s going to be so helpful that he can too.

                        Would any of the wonderful MP staff be able to answer, will there be a buy option for the additional books and new curriculum guide for the five day Junior Kindergarten for those of us who have already purchased the two day Junior Kindergarten curriculum? Or if we wanted the material, would we need to buy the books and five day curriculum guide individually? Thanks in advance.

                          Hey, Michael.

                          You would need the Myself & Others Cores I & 2, the curriculum manual, and the Llama Had No Pajamas poetry book. This all retails for around $120.00, but if you email sales@memoriapress.com, we will sell you these books for the $60 difference in price between the 2-day and 5-day programs since they are discounted in the packages.

                            There you go MP (and Tanya), outdoing yourself (again) in kindness to your customers. Thank you. It will have to wait until the new year as Christmas shopping has dinged our wallet. But thanks again.
