I have an older 3rd grader (he will be 10 this Sept) and 2nd grader doing CTG this year. It is going well. My 3rd grader is doing all of the assignments.Tina wrote:Hi everyone: I am wondering how those of you are doing using CtG with 2nd or 3rd grader? My dc are 10 and 7. I am excited to be moving on to CtG (we have used K, 1st and ECC). I am just wondering if the work load for that age is too much. I had to scale back on some of the ECC stuff for my now 2nd grader, and am wondering if I'll need to do the same for CtG. He is grasping most of what I teach now, maybe just not remembering some of the terms and definitely not where all the countries are on the geography game. He's doing better with each continent that we study though. Africa he remembered where more than half of them were.
Dh and I are going to press on to CtG next year with our then 3rd and 5th grader. We made that decision last year when we decided to finish ECC rather than Adventures. So, I am committed to my decision to go right into CtG. I am just wondering how others have managed with a 3rd grader.
How are your 3rd graders doing with it?

My 2nd grader has a little trouble with the Greek vocabulary but he is learning a lot so I don't push it. He is able to handle everything else.
