    We have orders, but no reports yet! I'll post if I hear anything.

    P.S. How are you feeling?

    I am also wondering how this is working for people. It sounds really helpful!

    Ask and ye shall receive --

    Here you go. Our first review.

    Background: In Myself & Others we tie appreciation & awareness & application of character lessons to the books we read. She seems to be in Week 4, Courage & Devotion.


    Grateful for the excellent books we get to dive in to with Memoria Press! We use the Myself and Others Level 1 set and just finished the book Rikki Tikki Tavi this week.

    [A]ll 3 of my boys loved it and my oldest has been asking for a mongoose since the first day we read it.

    Today, our little chihuahua mix killed a garden snake in the backyard while the boys were playing and now they canít stop talking about how loving and loyal our dog was to ďsave their livesĒ (although they werenít in any real danger lol!).

    I love that both my autistic 5 year old and his neurotypical brothers all learn so much from each week and their love of good books continues to grow!

    Thank you for putting these sets together! They are wonderful for everyone!

    You might want to select based on the child who needs the most behavior/social skills/manners training.

    The others will benefit, but you want the targeted child to be in the "sweet spot."

    Lower is better to begin, because the lessons may be learned more easily from the more accessible books. Each is only 14 weeks, and they build on each other, so you can complete two or three levels in a single calendar year.

    Hi, Heidi. They build on each other, but each can also be taught independently.

    I also placed an order with the free ship! In typical fashion, I analyzed and over analyzed my decision. Ha! I decided to go for Level 2 for my son in MP2. I think we probably would have been fine in Level 3 based on the readiness assessment but I tend to go a notch below out of OCD fear of having any gaps and holes. Can't wait to share success stories over the coming months and at SG. 😊

    I went with level 3 because of Aesops Fables. I loved the idea of the go along copybook too. I agonized over the readiness tests and I think this level will be really good.

    So excited!

    My dh at first was against it, but after our recent diagnosis and noted weak points he agreed it was a good next step.

    My order came and I got all the pieces of level one except for the curriculum guide. It's back-ordered. Waaah. I'm glad it seems like its been selling well!

    As an aside, I also got the summer reading journals (the ones in the new 1st grade core). I like them a lot for our lighter summer days.

    Thank you Cheryl! This is why I need the forum. I totally missed the readiness assessments. Susan, like you Iím torn between two levels. I think we will start at the beginning and work our way through them.

    Thanks!

    I ordered level 3 last week and it arrived yesterday. Yay!

    The kids discovered the CD in the back. I discovered this...

    My kids have always loved the Jim Weiss CDs. So even though I already had an Aesop book, I ordered the full set to get this book with the CD. Totally worth it!

    I love pics of children working! Looking forward to handing lots of MP capes out tonight to Nashville homeschoolers.
