      I think you will be able to tell from the sample. Some higher vocabulary and composition skills needed.

      We're thinking age/ability 9 or 10 and up, but some of our SC 3 students could use this.

      We are including it in an upper level of Myself & Others (coming soon!).

        Ohh. That looks really nice.

        Speaking of Myself and Others, I have a question. I'm currently doing SC B with my 4 year old, so I was originally thinking of doing Myself and Others with both boys after he finishes B, but now I'm wondering about the practical aspect of doing that with a 5 and 10 year old. There's such a huge difference in maturity, ability, etc. Should I do it separately? Should I still start my 10 year old with the 1st level?

          It could be beneficial for your 10yo, but you would want to prep him by letting him know this is "just a review" for him, or that he will "help the 5yo by participating," or otherwise enlist his cooperation up front.

          As with many things, teaching two levels separately might be ideal, given the age difference, but time might limit that option! Your call there.

          If you can manage teaching two M&O levels along with your academic lessons, your older child would not need to start with the first book, but if you need to combine, he will likely benefit from the review.

          Eta: I cannot remember if your 10yo is she or he, but after typing I'm leaning toward "she." Adjust pronouns as needed!

            Why, oh, why do you have to call me out of my blissful, perfect-world planning that goes on in my head and bring me back to reality. Ha ha ha. Maybe I should get through February and assess how are actual school days are going before adding anything else.

            My 10 yo is a boy. My children are boy, girl, boy.

              Boy, girl, boy. Then you can keep the "he!" ☺

              I do remember some behavioral concerns, so I would target either the younger boy for prevention of worsening behavioral issues or the older boy to address behavioral/social/emotional matters prior to the teen years.

              You can easily add the lower levels, as these are quick to teach, combining as indicated above. All of the levels (including Books Three and Four) can be taught as Health Studies. This is intentional, because many of our children with impulse challenges, autism spectrum, and social difficulties need explicit lessons in such things.

              If you're concerned at all about manners, behavior, health habits right now, I would add at least one M&O level to the family mix, combining where needed or saving portions (e.g., upper level M&O literature) for summer supplements. Remember that you can complete an entire level in a semester.

                Thanks Cheryl. You're right these are things I need to make time for. And explicit teaching of health items, yes. Necessity of deodorant, brushing teeth, needing to actually wash in the bath.

                For my youngest, do I want to finish SC B before beginning M&O since it has a manners section? Or can they be done concurrently?

                  They could be taught concurrently. Level B takes more time with practicing each "please" and "thank you" in simple ways, while M&O Book One will address additional topics related to behavior, health, & social understanding.

                    We have a new sample of Myself & Others Book One available now. Visual cues and hand motions introduce each topic. Instructions are included in the Teacher Notes.
