Hi Coleen,3littlechickies wrote:We will be starting ECC in about a month with an almost 4th grader, almost 2nd grader and a just turned 4 year old. I have the second edition manual, but none of the new stuff. I know about the books I need, but I have a question about the student sheets and the flag sticker books.
I assume my 2nd grader will need a copy of the student sheets and the little one will not, but do you think the little one will want a flag sticker book, or is she just way too young to use it? I know she doesn't NEED it, but I don't want her to feel left out either:) What has been your experience doing this program with a little one?
Get the 4 year old a sticker book. Even if it is not used for "school" and used in the way that the older kids will, if you think your child would really like it... get it. It's worth the smiles and the extra fun. I'd even get the 4 year old a passport. It would just make it fun if they want to join in the fun parts of ECC and might inspire them for pretend play for a while to travel to another country.....
I once heard David Hazell say that he sometimes wishes he could say on the website "Flag Sticker Book -- buy one for every member of the family who would enjoy it" LOL
but.... they just say "one per student"
my youngest enjoyed having a book. For the price I don't feel like anything was wasted to let her join in the fun over the year.
