We started our fourth grade school year in July and decided to take July and August (which were filled with camps and vacations) to do this curriculum. We doubled up on a few of the first lessons (as we had already covered some of this in the regular curriculum) but quickly moved to one lesson per day.
The lessons are just the right length. New concepts were introduced in manageable chunks that flowed together so well that, on several occasions, my daughter 'got it' before the actual algorithm was taught. She was excited to 'beat the book'. On the rare day when we finished too quickly we simply chose a game from recent weeks to replay.
We loved having periodic 'game days' to make the ideas we had been learning more concrete (and of course, my daughter loved beating mom whenever she could!)
I am SO glad I decided to spend some time with this 'side' curriculum before resuming our regular Right Start curriculum.
A side benefit: we were forced to do quite a bit of multiplication during these months - a great (and sneaky) way of reinforcing those skills too!
Thank you for a great set of lessons!
