    Faster pacing for More Storytime Treasures?

    C (10yo) has really hit his stride! He’s begging to read the More Storytime Treasures books in one sitting (which he can do) and he would like to work through the Student Guide more quickly (I’m not letting him skip). Has anyone quickened the pace in More Storytime? What framework did you follow for it? His comprehension is solid but the phonics/grammar work is all new (and needed) so I don’t want to rework things the wrong way and make it overwhelming.

    Are you doing MP1 or SC3?

      Oh wait I see now! sC3. We finished all of that last year (including Prairie School ) about this time last year. I think we read one day, then did about 20 min in the student guide the next day. If it is not done in one sitting, I would re-read the next day and then finish the student guide.

        I wouldn't have thought of just doing a set amount of time each day. *facepalm*
        That will be much easier than trying to break up the work by topic or whatever. Thank you!!

          I pretty much operate on a “time allotment” for each subject. This means my SC4’er, who would claim to be done with Latin in 7 minutes, is actually learning and retaining her latin now. Math, she can only do about 1/2 a lesson, but is remembering her multiplication! When we did SC3 read aloud last year, some of the reading was too much and some too little. I decided 20 min everyday, and we were able to stick with it! (I tried originally “keeping up” with the guide and felt defeated). Ocassionally, I deter from the time allotment, when needed, of course. I use Laura Berquist suggested time per grade. I have been pleased, because for the most part it seems to be spot on for not getting too far off the guide.

            howiecram, I am very sorry for inserting myself here, but I do not know how else to ask my question. I am completely new here. I saw a post from you that mentioned how to use AAR alongside MP's materials. I am wanting to move into MP, but we have already started with AAR, and are finally finding our stride. Could you help me find our place?

              Yes, I can try and help! . Where are you at in AAR, and do you suspect any learning challenges?

                We are in AAR's PreReading program. It is beneath my daughter, but when I purchased it she still had some issues with letter confusion. I realize that we are not ready for MP K, but I am wondering how far along we need to be in AAR before beginning MP. My daughter has high functioning autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and SPD, especially APD, so, yes, there are language delays. She is very verbal and has an advanced vocabulary, but is asynchronous in her language development. THANK YOU!!!

                  You might consider Sc-c, instead of AAR. You can actually use the pre-reading alongside SC-C. I did like some of the games in the pre#reading level. I did follow the Sc-c letters, instead of the AAR sequence. If Sc-c was learning letter “b”, I did all the corresponding “b” pages. AAR does uppercase, then lowercase, but I heard many moms say the just did one letter at a time, and it worked.
