    Default lesson plans

    Hello,

    I've been using T4L since August for homeschooling my daughter. She is in Kindergarten. I've been trying to use the suggested calculation sheet to determine how many lessons to complete each day for her. Although it doesn't seem to be working. If I'm understanding the sheet correctly, the curriculum is divided by chapter, lesson, activity. The pace I've been keeping is completing 1 full lesson each day for both language arts and math. That requires me to do all the activities within the lesson. But it seems that with this pace I'm almost finished with the Kindergarten curriculum and it's not even November! Am I only supposed to be completing 1 activity per subject each day? That doesn't seem right because that wouldn't take very long at all. I know that I can jump ahead to 1st grade but I don't really desire to do that. I don't want her to get too far ahead. I don't want her to be in "second" grade at the age of 6. Any suggestions?

    A kindergartner should only spend half an hour or 45 minutes on the computer daily. One ACTIVITY per subject per day is about right. One whole lesson is usually too much for a student to keep up with over the long term. Do look at the teaching guides, available in your parent login, for offline activity ideas to go with each lesson, along with extra printable resources.

    Homeschooling takes MUCH less time than traditional school . . . especially in the younger grades. You might be interested in How Long is a Homeschool Day?
