The first half of Bob Books Set 3 Book 8 (“Bed Bugs”) seems really simple, but then we reach the second half, and a number of new concepts are introduced in a short space. For that reason, we slow the lessons down a bit and read fewer pages — all of this so that we aren’t introducing too many new things in one day. If you happen to have a more gifted student — one who can easily learn a number of new rules in a day without getting frustrated or needing to go over our magic 15-minute time limit — feel free to combine lessons two and three together to give him more of a challenge.
Quick tip: don’t be afraid to pull old cards forward if your student has forgotten the rules. Even though it is generally true that the cards move toward the back of the binder — and therefore less frequent review — our students now know a lot of rules, and sometimes they need to refresh their memories. This is okay, too!
