I'm looking more closely into Rod and Staff and I have some questions. How long does a lesson take each day and how teacher intensive is it? How many problems are completed each day. We would be coming over from CLE math which can be done fairly independently, but the lessons can feel very long.

I don't know how I would place my children and am looking for some feedback.

DD11 in 5th has completed 80% of CLE 5. Looking at samples online (there aren't many) it appears that she has already covered most of the material in R&S 6 and 7. She picks up concepts quickly and easily, but is sloppy in her computation and makes silly mistakes. I thought putting her in R&S 6 next year might be a review and solidify year before moving into Pre Algebra, although it might be better to put her in 7 next year.

DS9 in 3rd is my main motivation for looking for new math. He is a dreamer and his CLE can take an hour or more on a distracted day. It's the consistent problem in our school. He has completed 50% of CLE 3. Looking at the 3rd final in the curriculum guide, he could easily pass it. He doesn't have his math facts memorized, and occasionally still struggles with place value. I think R&S might offer a more focused study vs CLE, which could benefit him.

DS7 is in 1st. He is my most naturally math minded. He has finished CLE 1. He doesn't have his math facts memorized but understands place value, can mentally add two digit numbers including carrying, add three digit numbers on paper, tell time, and count money. I would love to be mostly on track with the curriculum guides, but I am not sure if R&S 2 would be just too slow paced for him. I also don't want to move him too far ahead.

Any help figuring this out would be appreciated. Thanks,

Rachel
