    I'll let her know, but I think now that she knows she will be doing them in the future that she's happy. This week she started Narrative and is really enjoying it, and really enjoying the DVD (says she likes the background better than the first and loves being able to see when things are highlighted on the menu). After watching the DVD and then reading through the lesson in the book (she likes to read through it once she is done), she said, "I am so glad that Memoria Press has DVDs, because the teacher manual isn't nearly as easy to follow." I had to chuckle, because that pretty much sums up my feelings as well.

    The accelerated Fable/Narrative plans take you through half the Fable and half the Narrative. So you will skip some lessons. It really doesn't matter which lessons you do since they are all formatted the same and have you doing the same work. When you move on to other Stages, you will begin each year with a review Fable lesson and a review Narrative lesson, so you need to keep those books with new lessons in them for review.

    Is that a more appropriate response?

    That sounds like something I would do, LOL. Thanks, that makes sense. I'll tell my daughter, because she was wanting to do the other lessons in Fable just for fun. She finished the first half of the accelerated lessons during the first quarter of the school year, which we just finished (our year runs late because we school year round with our year ending August 31st...and because we've been battling illness).

Our accelerated 3rd grade program does Greek Myths, Latina Christiana I, States & Capitals, and Christian Studies I in one year. Our regular package spreads this work over two years, giving students an opportunity to adjust to the stepped-up 3rd grade work - a slower transition from primary school to grammar school. Our accelerated 4th grade for Latin, history, geography/modern studies, and Christian studies is the same as our regular 5th grade. The accelerated program is just a year ahead in these subjects. Math and spelling stay on the same grade level - accelerated and regular 3rd graders both complete 3rd grade math and so forth.

    Hmmm, even the Fable/Narrative lesson plans? I need to look at them more closely because my daughter is telling me that it has you go from Fable to Narrative before you are done with Fable. Maybe I printed them out incorrectly.

    started a topic Accelerated Fable and Narrative Lesson Plans

    Accelerated Fable and Narrative Lesson Plans

    Do the accelerated lesson plans accelerate the pace by skipping some of the lessons?
