In our previous program, my dd got bored reading the same book five times, and I wonder if she'll get bored being on the same letter or animal for 6 days? Should we shorten our week to four days and have one day "off" due to the fact that she already reads, etc.?
P.S. oh wow the sticky with K unit studies is very, very helpful. I need to read the TM as well more carefully.
You mentioned something about how you hope your child won't get bored with the same letter/animal for 6 days. Oh, goodness, there are so many wonderful children's books out there for each topic that 6 days isn't even enough days to do each topic justice.
Instead of reading a book only on Day 6--Book Day, I found enough children's books at our library and in our own collection so that we could read a new book each day. I used both fiction and nonfiction books, and we read a different book on the topic during our read-aloud time at the tail end of our school time each day. For some topics, there were so many books that we read two books each day. We learned so much about each topic, and we enjoyed many, many wonderful children's books during our kindergarten experience!
As far as getting bored with each letter, there are a variety of activities to do to keep it fresh. If your child is already reading, instead of focusing on the letter, you could focus more on different words that begin with that letter.
We just finished MFWK in May, and we had a fabulous year! I hope you and your child enjoy your kindergarten year, as well! :-)
