    Some Technical Questions Re Level 1

    We are in the preparation stages of beginning Level 1. We should start in another week or so. Looking ahead to the teacher's portion of prep, I have a few questions about the plan:

    1) FSR Book A
    We completed the entirety of Book A in the latter half of Level C. Should we complete it again, or simply review?

    2) R&S Arithmetic
    I see what you meant about R&S having lots of manipulatives to assist learning! (Back when I was weighing the pros and cons of sticking with Math U See, since we had invested so much money in the manipulative blocks -- still hoping to sell them, I think).
    My biggest question is with the Flannel Board -- the specs do not state how big it should be. Suggestions? The felt counters for ones and tens are 1x1 and 1x10 respectively. The felt board should be big enough to accommodate them with a divider in the middle and space left over to work (I infer). Am making my own (after looking at the crazy prices of them online!) but need a little clarity before I start crafting.
    Also, I assume the flash cards included in the core pack are sufficient and I will not have to make any more (?) and should we make templates for the measuring cups and trees? I want to get all our prep out of the way before we dive in.

    3) Seasonal activities
    A quick scan of the Level 1 plans makes it appear that there are few (if any) seasonal activities -- a contrast from Levels B and C. While I favor this (so we can begin and end pretty much any time of year) I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to how we might add in some seasonal things (or if we need to?). I have some Advent and Easter activities already lined up for the kids, and we have a few "Catholic" supplements to begin Catechesis in earnest. .... Input?

    4) Recitation
    I infer that Level 1 was meant to be the continuation of Level C but also a kind of "stand alone" for students who place directly in to it without the need for the previous levels, so I understand why the recitation portion is so much simpler than the end of Level C. Still, the beginning stages are going to be too easy for Winston. I am planning to insert the recitation from Level C that he has not yet mastered or that he needs refreshing in, as well as learning the new information from Level 1. Is this advised?

    I think that's about it -- FOR NOW! I'm sure I'll be back with more questions as we progress! I will say that Level 1 is quite different from Levels A-C! (In a good way.) I am slightly intimidated but excited nonetheless. I know evertying we have done in previous levels has prepared us well.

    Re: Some Technical Questions Re Level 1

    We are in the preparation stages of beginning Level 1. We should start in another week or so.

    Congratulations!



    Looking ahead to the teacher's portion of prep, I have a few questions about the plan:

    1) FSR Book A
    We completed the entirety of Book A in the latter half of Level C. Should we complete it again, or simply review?


    You will need to complete Book A again, but you have several options:

    Low - If the student was not ready for the writing portion last time, include the printing portion this time.
    Middle - If the student printed in the book last time but would benefit from the printing practice, teach "as is" again. The printing also helps create another "pathway" to the brain for reviewing phonics and reading skills.
    High - If the student already wrote in the book, prints very well, and reads the words with relative ease, simply review each page orally.

    Whichever you choose, you might want to illustrate a "strong foundation" this way:
    Build a wobbly tower of blocks with one small block on the bottom. Then build a solid tower with two blocks on the bottom. Then say, "Just like these blocks, your reading needs a good foundation. Book A is very important, so we will practice one more time to make your skills stronger. Then you will learn to read from Books B, C, and D."



    2) R&S Arithmetic
    I see what you meant about R&S having lots of manipulatives to assist learning!


    Yes! This is a little-known benefit of R&S.

    My biggest question is with the Flannel Board -- the specs do not state how big it should be. Suggestions? The felt counters for ones and tens are 1x1 and 1x10 respectively. The felt board should be big enough to accommodate them with a divider in the middle and space left over to work (I infer).

    You infer correctly. For our special-needs children, a good amount of "empty space" will help visually. I would make it as large as your homeschooling space can accommodate.

    Also, I assume the flash cards included in the core pack are sufficient and I will not have to make any more (?)

    Correct. MP packages do not include the flash cards, but SC packages do. (Moms of children with special needs already have plenty to do!)



    and should we make templates for the measuring cups and trees? I want to get all our prep out of the way before we dive in.

    Yes, this would be excellent to do, if you can. Very good to prep all of this ahead of time. You will be much more engaging in the lessons, when everything is ready to teach!


    3) Seasonal activities
    A quick scan of the Level 1 plans makes it appear that there are few (if any) seasonal activities -- a contrast from Levels B and C. While I favor this (so we can begin and end pretty much any time of year) I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to how we might add in some seasonal things (or if we need to?). I have some Advent and Easter activities already lined up for the kids, and we have a few "Catholic" supplements to begin Catechesis in earnest. .... Input?



    You can continue any practices your children enjoyed from A, B, and C, such as rereading favorite A, B, C books by season. You might also want to purchase an inexpensive monthly calendar with simple, highly seasonal photos (large pumpkins in the fall). Review the calendar each day with the date, the month, and the season. You can continue those calendar patterns begun in the readiness levels.

    Some families from liturgical traditions enjoy introducing the Church Year in a more visible way at this time. You could have an Advent wreath, Christmas tree with Chrismons, Epiphany lights, and continue with tangible home traditions through Lent, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, etc., back to Advent, the beginning of the Church Year. You could add to the traditions as your children grow.



    4) Recitation
    I infer that Level 1 was meant to be the continuation of Level C but also a kind of "stand alone" for students who place directly in to it without the need for the previous levels, so I understand why the recitation portion is so much simpler than the end of Level C.


    Correct. The academic portions of Level 1 intensify from "readiness" to "student" levels, so we did not want to overwhelm.


    Still, the beginning stages are going to be too easy for Winston. I am planning to insert the recitation from Level C that he has not yet mastered or that he needs refreshing in, as well as learning the new information from Level 1. Is this advised?

    Yes, this is perfect. You might also want to keep all of the Level C recitations handy for periodic review. Consider inserting all of the accumulated recitations into Weeks 9, 18, 27, and 34.

    As an aside, did you ever think "too easy for Winston" would be something you would say?!



    I think that's about it -- FOR NOW! I'm sure I'll be back with more questions as we progress! I will say that Level 1 is quite different from Levels A-C! (In a good way.) I am slightly intimidated but excited nonetheless. I know everything we have done in previous levels has prepared us well.



    You can do this. Slow the pace in the beginning if you need to, just as you did when creating a good teaching rhythm for the other levels.

    Thanks-

      Thank you! Happy to finally be here!

Then say, "Just like these blocks, your reading needs a good foundation. Book A is very important, so we will practice one more time to make your skills stronger. Then you will learn to read from Books B, C, and D."


      We will likely review orally with an emphasis on dictation and writing out some of the words he finds sticky. He caught on to reading and phonics far, far better than I anticipated. He still has a hard time with consonant blends, though. So we will hit that a little harder in review.

      2) R&S Arithmetic
      I see what you meant about R&S having lots of manipulatives to assist learning!


      Yes! This is a little-known benefit of R&S.

      You infer correctly. For our special-needs children, a good amount of "empty space" will help visually. I would make it as large as your homeschooling space can accommodate.

      AS BIG AS MY KITCHEN TABLE?! (Just kidding.) So... I suppose the plan would be to buy a large piece of stiff project boarding (maybe two, sturdily taped together) and cover it with felt. Then our workspace would be about as big as a standard piece of posterboard (at a fraction of the price of a ready-to-use felt board -- the cheapest I found on Amazon was $26, which is just unacceptable for something I can make myself).

      Also, I assume the flash cards included in the core pack are sufficient and I will not have to make any more (?)
      Correct. MP packages do not include the flash cards, but SC packages do. (Moms of children with special needs already have plenty to do!)

      SERIOUSLY.

      and should we make templates for the measuring cups and trees? I want to get all our prep out of the way before we dive in.
      Yes, this would be excellent to do, if you can. Very good to prep all of this ahead of time. You will be much more engaging in the lessons, when everything is ready to teach!

You could add to the traditions as your children grow.


      Since we started SC a little over a year ago, I have been using the big, inexpensive desk calendars (that secretaries and office managers use) we find at Target or Staples. The squares are big enough (aka HUGE) to accomoodate hand drawn pictures of holidays, feasts, the beginnings of seasons, birthdays, trips, etc., so that things are as visual as possible for the kids. We count how many days there are until the next major milestone (Fall, the first day of the new month, someone's birthday) and we have really benefited from this approach. Winston gets excited every time we begin a new month. He likes to tear off the previous month and say things like, "September is ALLLLL DONE!"

      4) Recitation
      I infer that Level 1 was meant to be the continuation of Level C but also a kind of "stand alone" for students who place directly in to it without the need for the previous levels, so I understand why the recitation portion is so much simpler than the end of Level C.

      As an aside, did you ever think "too easy for Winston" would be something you would say?!


      NO I DID NOT! LOLOLOLOL! So thrilled! Okay, sounds good.


      I think that's about it -- FOR NOW! I'm sure I'll be back with more questions as we progress! I will say that Level 1 is quite different from Levels A-C! (In a good way.)

        (HAPPY SQUEAL!)
        This is TOTAL genius. If anyone else is DIY-ing their own flannel board, look no further than this little lifehack: http://www.oopseydaisyblog.com/2010/...nel-board.html
        I cannot believe how simple and perfect this is (and that I didnt think of it).

        In short: buy the biggest portable, magnetic, dry-erase white board you can find and glue flannel onto the BACK of it. Trim as desired. Your end product is a dry erase board/magnetic board on one side and a flannel board on the other.

        (I KNOW! How super cool! )

          You totally beat me to it. I don't have space to hang things on walls and I sure don't want a giant flannel board on my wall. I simply hot glued a piece of flannel on the back of a lap sized dry erase board. Perfect size, pefect price. Yay!

              Re: Some Technical Questions Re Level 1

              I love it more when I find a slightly larger than lap sized white board at the thrift store for 50 cents. Spray it with window cleaner. Voila I just saved loads and have a sparkling new white board. Hot glued some teal felt on the back and my 10 little red squares looked right at home. We move our little squares around, flip it over and practice filling in our fact houses.

              As a side tip: I draw the houses with a wet erase marker like vis a vis. Then we use a dry erase marker to fill them in. Writing doesn't smudge the house or erase them, but fact family fill in can be easily erased with a finger and rewritten.

                  Re: Some Technical Questions Re Level 1

                  Bumping this as needed.

                  Here are my latest questions:
                  1) Saw a free Spotify playlist was created by some kind soul for K-2 (I believe) musical selections. Is there a free Spotify playlist for the selections for Level 1? If not, I can create one using my iTunes library, just wondered.

                  2) Do you have a suggestion on how to organize and store the R&S flash cards? They are a speciality size and a bit unwieldy. They also do not lend themselves readily to uniform organization (I infer from a quick scan). My fear is that my 3 year old wrecking ball will pull them all out one day and get them all over the dining room and I'll be sunk.

                  3) We are Catholic. I would like to use the DR Bible instead of the KJV. Will this cause problems in teaching the material? I'd like to start with a specific translation and see it through to the end of our school career. The NASB is clunky, and even the NABRE does not have enough poetry to its usage. The Vulgate (which I *think* we have somewhere) might not be practical... The only drawback to the DR is it might be confusing to little ears (it gets me turned around sometimes as to what the text is actually saying!). Suggestions?
                  Also, I know there is a rumor of a Catholic supplement coming out, possibly Spring 2016. Would this cover SC Levels? Would it include the "Catholic books" of the Bible?

                  All for now! Thank you!

                    Please do! Many of the selections will be similar to the MP K-2 version.


                    Do you have a suggestion on how to organize and store the R&S flash cards? They are a speciality size and a bit unwieldy. They also do not lend themselves readily to uniform organization (I infer from a quick scan). My fear is that my 3 year old wrecking ball will pull them all out one day and get them all over the dining room and I'll be sunk.

                    Yes, they are large! It might be worth a trip to an organization store (online or otherwise) with measurements. If you could tab the cards, this might be helpful.

                    Or you can use our low-cost "system" for flash cards: We grouped them by labeled baggies. Then all of the baggies were stored in a bin. A little slippery, but much less spillage and loss than if they were loose. You'll likely discover something much lovelier, more artistic, or more convenient. If you do, please share!



                    We are Catholic. I would like to use the DR Bible instead of the KJV. Will this cause problems in teaching the material? I'd like to start with a specific translation and see it through to the end of our school career. The NASB is clunky, and even the NABRE does not have enough poetry to its usage.

The only drawback to the DR is it might be confusing to little ears (it gets me turned around sometimes as to what the text is actually saying!). Suggestions?


                    You can use any version for our lower SC levels. The stories remain the same. As long as you read the same story in your preferred translation, the copybook and memory verse will have meaning for the child. Memoria Press selects the KJV for its impressive literary influence and historical significance. See these thoughts, or this: The Noblest Monument of English Prose. For SC 1 and SC 2, we shortened the selected memory verses because of the KJV's linguistic complexity, but poetic beauty and truth remain.


                    Also, I know there is a rumor of a Catholic supplement coming out, possibly Spring 2016. Would this cover SC Levels? Would it include the "Catholic books" of the Bible?

                    You might want to ask about the details of this supplement over on K-8. We do not currently plan to utilize this with the SC levels.


                    All for now! Thank you!

                    You are welcome!

                      Re: Some Technical Questions Re Level 1

                      Anita, I can reply to the flashcards question. They are big, 4x11 inches specifically. Mine came in a specially sized ziploc type bag that's very sturdy. I guess they used to come in a box.

                      After using them a few weeks here's what I've learned. Organize them by type right off. So, group all numbers, domino cards, addition by fact family, etc together. Then, as I need them I pull them out to our working pile. I use a gallon ziploc bag. It's not quite big enough, but really close. I tuck them inside and fold it over, place it on a shelf about 4 feet up and the 2 year old hasn't bothered them yet.

                      We live rural, but I imagine you could take that measurement to target or a container store and find something like a shoe box to keep them all in. I would recommend two containers because then theyre not as unwieldy. The whole stack is a little taller than 3 inches.

                      Hope that helps

                        After using them a few weeks here's what I've learned. Organize them by type right off. So, group all numbers, domino cards, addition by fact family, etc together. Then, as I need them I pull them out to our working pile. I use a gallon ziploc bag. It's not quite big enough, but really close. I tuck them inside and fold it over, place it on a shelf about 4 feet up and the 2 year old hasn't bothered them yet.

                        We live rural, but I imagine you could take that measurement to target or a container store and find something like a shoe box to keep them all in. I would recommend two containers because then theyre not as unwieldy. The whole stack is a little taller than 3 inches.

                        Hope that helps
                        Thank you, dear!

                        Mine came in a box. So I'm thinking I will group them together as you suggested and use homemade tabs to label each section. If I take out one card and trace around it on heavy, brightly-colored card stock (slightly larger than the actual card with a tab space created at the top -- a different color for each section) that will do the trick.

As long as you read the same story in your preferred translation, the copybook and memory verse will have meaning for the child. Memoria Press selects the KJV for its impressive literary influence and historical significance. See these thoughts, or this: The Noblest Monument of English Prose. For SC 1 and SC 2, we shortened the selected memory verses because of the KJV's linguistic complexity, but poetic beauty and truth remain.
                          Three things:
                          1) Thank you I wish I had your laser-like focus and talent for responses. A gift.
                          2) There is an online resource that actually puts the Vulgate, DR and KJV side-by-side so you can compare translations. Neato. Might have to use that one!
                          3)Nothing against the beauty of the KJV (of course) but my priest would wag his finger at me -- LOL! All our parish children use the DR (as far as I know). All the Sunday Mass readings are from the DR as well. So... The DR is LOVELY. But I am a convert, so I am more used to the poetry of the KJV... We will likely utilize a hybrid of both.

                          Gracias!

                            Just make sure your tabs fit in the box. Nothing like going to all that work and then it be too big. Maybe a good old fashioned sticky note would do the trick between layers and it's flexible so will bend if it's hanging out too far. I like cheap and easy. Ha

                              Another new question for today! (Good morning.)

                              Looking over the recitation for Level 1, I see a few new memory verses but not much more that is new or challenging. Should I order a K or grade 1 recitation? Or perhaps cobble together a plan based on previous levels and material that needs to be reviewed/was not totally mastered? Or am I jumping the gun here?

                              (And yes! I realize the full import of the IRONY of this request! THANKS BE TO GOD!)
