... if that makes any sense at all. LOL Here's my situation:
We got our books from Bookshelf Central Monday around lunchtime. By dinner Tuesday evening, DD (9 1/2) had read pretty much all of them. She's also read through the Usborn Internet Linked Encyclopedia of the Ancient World and both of our Worldview references. Now she's reading Story of the World, V1, like a novel, because we're out of books for her. We live in a tiny, rural town without a great library, so we buy the Primary Resources, and figure we'll save money and time in the long run, because she's the oldest out of 6. (Her next younger brother, 8, is in UG, too.) I'm 99% sure she's not ready for D work yet, but what about the reading? What I'm thinking is getting her the D level books, and letting her read those after her UG assignments are done. (For example, this week, she's supposed to fill out a worksheet for each story in Buddha Stories. In my plan, after she filled out any necessary work like that, she'd be free to read any of the D level books.) Would that work? Or should I just bump her up to D? This particular child has a habit of surprising me by how much she can do. She won't let you know her potential until she's really pressed to do so. Thanks in advance!
