    Default Frantic about the 4th grade math lessons

    How in the world does anyone stay caught up with the math lessons? My granddaughter is already about 15 lessons behind. But, its not all her fault. Some of the lessons are new concepts to her, so she has needed extra practice. We cannot do 2 lessons a day as we are supposed to in order to finish in 180 days. What happens if we aren't finished with all the lessons at the end of the 180 days? Summer school?
    Please, any suggestions are appreciated.

    Time4Learning doesn't insist on a certain amount of work getting done in a certain amount of time. Your student can take all the time she needs.

    Are you trying to do two whole LESSONS a day . . . or two lesson ACTIVITIES? With 336 lesson activities in the curriculum, you need to do less than two a day to get it done in 180 days. A lesson activity is just ONE "bubble".

    We parents are accustomed to thinking of a "lesson" as "the amount of work to be done on this subject in a day". Instead, each chapter is divided into lessons, and each lesson is divided into several lesson activities. A lesson itself can take several days, with one or two lesson activities being done each day. (For math, seriously consider using the printable worksheets, too.

    Please let me know if this didn't solve your problem.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
