    5/6 in One or Two Years?

    Alas! My oldest boy is slated to finish SC 4 before the end of October. I am looking at SC 5/6, assessed him, and he is very excited about the materials! I am pondering whether I should plan for him to complete the levels in one or two years? What are the pros and cons?

    The general recommendation is the two year pace. We started the 1 year pace, following the common advice to take a few weeks to get through 2 weeks. Well, 10 weeks later we were still kind of operating at the "half speed". I ended up ordering the two year pace and suddenly we were on week 20! It was very refreshing to actually use the two year pace guide. . The only thing that we didn't keep at that pace was the Latin. Doing 1 lesson every two weeks, was perfect for us rather than 1 lesson every 4 weeks). (We also just did 1 lesson a day in math, completing R&S 3).

      Thank you Christine! Did you go through the Two Year Pace in two years? Or did you move along more quickly in the two year program?

        I did find that we did not need 10 days to do the material. It was more like 6-7, making it more like 1.5 years. That seemed like a good compromise to me.

          I’m using 5/6 with my just tuned 11 year old who has focusing struggles. He is in 7/8 math and science but everything else lines up perfectly with 5/6. I bought the 2 year guide because I wasn’t sure how long the lessons would take and I have several other children. I’m glad I did. I do feel like we are moving at them faster than the pace of the guide, but it’s easy to just keep plugging forward and I don’t feel stressed that I’m not getting enough done each day. My guess is it will also take us about 1.5 years to complete it.

            ^^^This is exactly how I felt. I think MOST days we did a little more than what it said each day, but if we "only" did as much as it said that day I felt really good! The Fridays are almost pure review in every subject. We didn't need quite as much review as is built in. Also at 1 lesson every 2 weeks, the review weeks (in CS, GM, etc) we didn't really need. We did the work, but in just a few days vice the 10 scheduled. *I should note that my child doesn't have any learning disabilities that I know of, we use SC more for behavioral/emotional issues to which we are medication and seeking treatment for*
