    The guide is tight, so that might not happen immediately. However, consider your mixed opinion valuable and noted. Perhaps by the time your son is ready for it, the guide will include the Supplemental Workbook plans with an optional checkbox!

    I have a mixed opinion! Isn’t that helpful? The older child will not need them as she has completed all 4 core skills books. However, for my son, I would appreciate them “in the guide” as it will entail less arguing. I think the workbook will be helpful for him. I like it in the guide as I am less likely to forget it! Perhaps a checkbox with “optional” as with the, now, supplemental primary phonics readers in MPK?

    A few notes that might help:

    1. TS II Spelling Practice Sheets are already included in the SC 5&6 Core.

    2. 8-week summer extensions occur only in SC B, C, 1, 2, 3, and 4.

    3. Beginning with SC 5&6, we offer the two different pacings (One-Year or Two-Year) to provide review throughout the lessons if needed. No matter which pacing is chosen, TS II Spelling Practice Sheets may be used throughout SC 5&6. We are adding instructions for these to the Curriculum Manual, but if you follow the instructions within the TS II Teacher Manual you will be fine. Simplified instructions: Students may practice spelling words during the week in a separate notebook or using the handy (and tidy) Practice Sheets!
    What about the spelling supplemental workbook? https://www.memoriapress.com/curricu...tice-workbook/. Will these be added to lesson plans for SC4 + 5/6? Or just supplemental?

    Look at the sample via Milestone. You will see the Eight Parts of Speech song with musical accompaniment.

They might be a little heavy for summer, but feel free to begin if you would like.
    I would begin with the Eight Parts of Speech. If you wanted a simplified summer activity y
    ou could begin by teaching the Eight Parts of Speech song at the beginning of that book. This will give your daughter a good overview with which to revisit pronouns and other parts of speech through a review of SC Writing 2 lessons or CS LA lessons on those topics. Your call -- depends on how much you want to cover over the summer.

    New English Grammar Practice from MP -- We have all of the lesson plans for EGP loaded up into the Curriculum Guide for SC 5&6 and set to release early June. When you receive your SCJ in June, you will know we are ready to share these! At that time, anyone who already purchased the SC 5&6 manual can request the updated plans. You will need to purchase EGP from MP if you have not already done so. Any newcomers to SC 5&6 will receive EGP (and the EGP plans) as part of the Core. This will be shown in the Summer 2019 SCJ.
    That is just what I will do. (P.s. I see them listed, but no mention of a song, do you know the tune we are supposed to use?) We can cover 1 per week, not use the worksheets, but review with core skills! That sounds like a simple plan!

    I will I’ll look forward to the updated guide, when it is ready! (I nee a new 1st grade, so that will work well!)

    Have they been added to the individual online lesson plans yet?

I am still deciding what to do for my son, but if you think the EGP would be beneficial in 5/6 for her, I would love to have it in the guide.

    Additionally, she is really struggling with grammar, in general. I have R&S 2 and 3 Grammar + R&S “English worksheets”. There are three separate little booklets saying for grades 3-5. They are titled 1)“The Eight Parts of Speech” 2) “The Sentence” or 3) “Punctuation and Capitalization”. The difficulty is with pronouns, etc. she gets “ verb and noun”. Anyway, I was wondering if working through one of these books this summer might be beneficial, if so, which would you recommend?

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing your discovery!

    "Liking" posts may be turned off, though it could be just a side effect of the update. I honestly can't remember: Did we have "likes" before the update?
    Thanks, that makes sense.

    I honestly have no idea if we had likes before. I just noticed that it will show how many likes a post has, but it always says "0" and assumed that we couldn't like them. I also couldn't find any way to "like" a post, which could account for the lack of likes, LOL.
