In the Easy-for-Me™ Teaching Manual 2, there are a total of 180 lessons provided. While ideally, one lesson could be taught per day, it's important to be flexible and responsive to your child's pace. Some lessons may be effortlessly grasped, while others might require additional time and practice. Observing your child's progress and understanding is key, allowing you to tailor the pace of instruction accordingly.

Whether you progress more quickly or take a bit more time, what matters most is ensuring comprehension and mastery of each skill. During assessments, it's crucial to identify any areas of difficulty and take the time to reteach them. Skipping over misunderstood concepts can lead to accumulation of gaps in knowledge over time. Therefore, it's preferable to proceed at a slower pace to ensure thorough understanding and mastery of all concepts presented.

 Kinesthetic Connections

Throughout the lessons, you'll find a variety of kinesthetic activities integrated into the lessons. These activities are not only beneficial for kinesthetic learners but also for tactile and visual learners. By incorporating visual elements, storytelling, and physical movement into the lessons, you can enhance your child's learning experience and ensure better retention of the material. Emphasizing these components will contribute significantly to your child's ability to learn and retain the concepts being taught, leading to more permanent learning outcomes.
