    Starting MId-Year

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question that I'm hoping someone can clarify for me.

    I hope to start my 12 year old Dd (grade 6) with Memoria's Grade 6 in the next few weeks, and I'm wondering if taking a summer break "mid core" is a reasonable thing to do, or if a large break would be an obstacle in the fall. If anyone could let me know their thoughts/opinion on this, I'll be grateful. She is eager to jump in, and so am I!

    Naturally I would ensure that we are not "mid-novel", although we might be "mid-latin"... flash card review all summer most definitely!

    Many thanks -

    Penny

    Penny,
    I can only speak with experience up through fourth grade but I think it would mostly depend how long your break will be. There's a natural break around Christmas each year for regular users. If I can remember correctly it's after week 15. Perhaps you could shoot to complete 15 weeks before breaking? I think you'll know well by that time what will need some review over the break and what other things can float a bit. You can do your review casually over the summer, perhaps even simply reviewing recitation or facts to know with something like Quizlet online (free: www.quizlet.com). My kids love Quizlet for Latin vocab/grammar matching and your daughter is old enough to make her own study sets there so that'll be an extra layer of learning!
    Best wishes!

      Good to know

      Thank you so much, that makes a lot of sense. I really appreciate your advice. I think week 15 is very doable. Even a few more weeks if need be.

      I just bought my materials about 5 minutes ago - so exciting!

      Thanks again,

      Penny
