    How do implement this w 4 children? Naomi

      :

      Depending on their ages, Naomi, you could do the beginning Numbers activities all together. But be prepared to watch each child’s progress and try to enable each to go at his pace as he comprehends the concepts. Since lessons should be short (15-20 minutes), it should not take too long to work with each child separately as desired——maybe an hour or an hour and a half per day total for all four.

    I have just received my copy, so I haven’t had time to read it thoroughly enough to comment on it. I would like to compliment the shipping department, though. Although I ordered it a week and a half before Christmas and chose standard shipping, I had the book in less than a week. I think the total turnaround time was four days.
