Okay, so it is only day 4 of our school year with my 4th grader, 1st grader and Kindergartener and once again, I've realized that the lofty ideas that I've planned out for the year may not be very practical. Anyone else do this?
I've planned Apologia for 4 days a week hoping to get through Swimming Creatures this year, but it really is alot of material to cover! We are doing Mystery of History, which I can tweak down to 3 days a week from its recommended 5 days with no problem, but with Apologia scheduled at 4 days and nature study on one day, our days are really long.
I am thinking of taking swimming creatures down to 2 days a week, but we'll not finish the book this school year if I do. If you are using Apologia for elementary, do you pick and choose lessons instead of covering the whole book in order to keep the weekly lessons down? Do you do one book over 2 years (I really don't want to do that)? Do you just have long lessons? How do you do it? I didn't realize there would be so much material to cover.
