I've just purchased my TOG Yr 1 materials and am excited about starting in the fall. I will have a first grader who will be close to a second grade reading level (we school year round), a 4 year old, and an infant (I'm due in March, so in the fall the baby will be about 5-6 months old).
My main question is how to schedule my TOG time. Should I have my K4 student tag along with the reading, or would it be better to do the work while she is off playing or taking a nap?
Second question, which books would be on my older child's reading level? I've heard that UG books are simpler reading because they are intended for independent work where as LG can be harder reading because they are intended as read-alouds. I'm a little confused about which ones to purchase so that my son will be able to read a few titles on his own. (I am planning to continue his phonics/reading program in addition to TOG.)
