I have both Primary and Intermediate and am wondering about the age ranges. I have new 4th and 5th graders(9 and 10) and was wondering if anyone else used the Primary with those ages? It says grades 2 and 3, but there are some really lengthy copywork segments toward the end.
Also, I have distrusted myself often and so haven’t been entirely consistant in CM methods over the years although they both used CM methods consistantly through second grade–and then I had the *panic* moment and went textbook for a while (horrors, I know).
I do not know anything about Serl’s (so you could stop right here 🙂 )but here are a few ways to determine where a child is in a book or series:
1. See if you can find a placement test on the internet.
2. If not, consider using tests that are included with the curriculum. When the child starts to miss too many, that is the general area to start them.
3. Lacking tests, go to the last lesson in the book and give it a go. I would do this separately with each child so that you get honest results if you are doing this orally. If it is easy, jump up to the next book and see where they are there. If it proves difficult, go to the last 2/3 are do the same thing, etc. And this need not be as daunting as it appears in type. It involves selecting a few representative problems/questions/passages, etc. and doing them orally if possible.
