Selections
for Lessons 1  12 chosen by Kim Reeder
Use
one lesson per week, for a total of 12 weeks or 1 Term. For each
lesson (week), use the following selections as a resource. As a suggestion:
spend 2 days a week on math and adapt the math concept as needed for the
age of your child. You will probably also need to be using another
math curriculum, unless you are just using this for a break from your regular
routine. There is a lot of math in the Friend magazine, but it will
not provide a complete math foundation.
