    Re: SC 5 & 6 is Here!

    Is there a sample of the 1-year versus the 2-year manual? Also, there are so, so many things in this curriculum. Is this more or less work than MP3 and MP4 or MP3A, assuming, of course, that the student in 3 did not write out all the answers as in SC5/6? I really like that it says level 5 and 6 so that my daughter will not realize that it is not a regular 5th and 6th grade curriculum. I wish that the regular MP curriculum manuals would not list the grade on the front! Congratulations of the publication!

    The extra “stuff” that comes in the SC guides makes them all worth it for us here!

    However, keep in mind that at MP3, most children should not be writing independently. It is still guided writing. (The question is discussed orally, a consise sentence is then spoken aloud, and then the “teacher” writes the child’s answer on the board (or somewhere) for the child to copy. ). Tanya indicated at Sodalitas 2017, that this continues until part way through the 4th grade. Tanya said “accept a 3rd grade answer, do not try to get them to the teacher’s guide answer. That is there for you to make sure child is on track!

    I hope I did not come off as patronizing! I just thought others might have the same questions! Your explanation of the cost of the manuals makes perfect sense! (Leaning towards the two year manual myself, just for the extras.). We are still progressing well in SC4, but not ready to purchase this level!

    Arithmetic -
    Yes, good point! We can add this customize option for the upper arithmetic levels as in other levels. Michael's point remains that we cannot switch between MP/SC at this time, but for arithmetic levels, we can customize up or down.

    As in the past, the SC plans for them will not yet be available for those arithmetic levels, but you will be able to customize and teach as written.

    Manuals -
    And yes, there is a difference in the two manuals. You may remember this from our 5&6 Sticky:

    The Two-Year Manual will include extra practice, review games, and "delve deeply" items that will not be possible to include at the accelerated pace. This could make it difficult for a user to determine which to include or omit when accelerating. The One-Year Manual streamlines rapidly and removes those extra items to accelerate in a manner closer to the MP pacing.

    Furthermore, the Two-Year plans provide more breathing room with catch-up and review days. These are all built in to the plans. Everything is spread out as two "volumes" within one large manual. You begin with Level 5 and work through Weeks 1-34. Then Level 6 Weeks 1-34. Largely the extra cost is for the extra size (printing, shipping, etc.), but also for the extra activities included in the Two-Year Manual as mentioned above.

    For anyone who wants to teach in 18 months, customize in other ways, or simply have the extra teaching games & activities at your fingertips, I recommend the Two-Year Manual.

    In SC4, there is an option for Grade 2 or Grade 3 math, under customize.

    Also, what is the difference between the 1 year and 2 year pace? There is a slight price difference?

    P.s. very excited!
