    Advancing R&S 1 Math

    As I've mentioned previously, my daughter will likely skip Level C and go straight from Level B to Level 1, with the 8-week review in between. In the meantime, she is not only interested in RS1 Math when her big brother does it, she is also joining in, completing answers, taking turns writing solutions on the white board and getting them correct. She knows Addition 1 & 2 Fact Families and has fewer problems with before, after, between, less and more than Winston.

    Since we are so early in the year with him (he is on Week 8, which is Lesson 15 in RS1) should I just keep her in RS1 with him? Do I go whole hog and get her a workbook and practice sheets? I ask because RS1 is tedious to teach and it goes much better with two students instead of one. I also don't want to teach her something she already knows twice (in a few months when she actually starts Level 1). The turn-taking aspect is also great for my kids, as well as healthy competition. (I do not plan to teach them FSRA together as Winston is far more advanced at phonics and reading than she is -- though I anticipate she will catch up quickly. She's smart as a whip and her comprehension of the written and oral word is better. She just has a hard time understanding how processes work; her working memory is also not as good as Winston's.)

    My older students are getting faster! We are consistently finishing two or three days of work in one day. The only area we "keep the pace" in is enrichment, which is a little more challenging for them -- that translates (for me) into areas we need to strengthen. The baby (3yo) is still a silly cowboy He will be ready for Level B a few weeks after he finishes Level A -- no speeding him up! He's a cute little mess!

    Sounds like a good plan to combine for arithmetic. Her own books will help.

    Congratulations!
