    Re: Ideas for K to K bridge (yep, you read that right!)

    A few more suggestions:

    We had to go back through books A-C with my oldest last year at this time! I knew she would baulk at re-doing the work books, so we improvised! We did use the SC1 plans. However, we did not do every little thing. The firsts 10 weeks or so of the SC1 plans are chalked with various activities for you to try to see what works for your child. After that, I believe it says "select one of the activities from week 1-10).

    1) write all the words from book A (or B or C, etc) on index cards. Select as many as you think your child could handle and lay them on the floor. You call out a word and have your child jump to it.

    2) word ladders - draw a ladder. Write the word cat on the bottom "rung". Then have your child change one letter to make a new word on the next rung up - cat - cap - map - mat - etc. You could choose to only stick with a particular word family, or use the example provided here.

    3) photocopy one of the word lists from Classical phonics and take some of these suggestions from AAR. https://blog.allaboutlearningpress.c...actice-sheets/ (I especially liked cutting them out in strips and driving a car over the words read...... You could also write some of the words from classical phonics on a board, so he doesn't end up memorizing the words!

    4) word family flippers. You take a notecard and write "at" and then cut up other notecards and staple them to the left of the word "at". You could also use a bigger piece of paper and have your child draw a picture on the right.

    5) Make word family dice. Roll the words and then write them.

    I like "this reading mama" for some other extra practice, but you can go crazy over there too!

    SC1 plans do call for you to read Phonics A to Z and I found it really helpful! A little lightbulb went on in my head after reading it, totally making FSR make sense to me! LOL


    Good luck!

      This is exactly my situation with our cottage school. He'll go from 2nd to 3A, so there's no rush to get there early! Iliad/Odyssey/Fourth Form Latin/Pe-Algebra/First Form Greek in seventh grade is quite early enough, thank you very much. Ha! It really, really helps to take the long view and remember that every family is working with certain circumstances that aren't applicable across the board. For us, the weekly accountability is one of the biggest bonuses for the older kids. It can also be a disadvantage for the littles if they get to a spot where slowing down can be best. Classes move on, but we homeschoolers aren't used to that. We are making a big deal about slowing down when necessary and repeating courses as needed. Since I can't really stretch it from now until January, say, we are going for a full-on repeat. I am not sure he's even going to notice!
