Teacher’s Note: Begin every class with a prayer. This is a good way to help the child memorize new prayers. Repeat the same ones every day until they are known. Be sure to explain the meanings of the prayers. Repetition in all areas of study is most important. In most cases, Fridays have been left open. You may do a four day week or use Friday as a “catch-up” day. While art and music should be worked in during the week, Friday is also a good day to concentrate on those subjects.
If you intend to use the sample tests provided, look them over before teaching the subjects and make sure you teach the material in the tests. Your student may not need all of Week 8 for review. You can use this time to “catch up” if necessary and then go over the subject matter. In first grade, it may not be possible for the child to do all of the tests independently. You may give the tests orally if necessary, but by the end of the year, the child should be able to complete them unaided.
