I can only view it as the photo for the discussion (like an advertisement).

I have a question about placement. Prior to AO for Groups/2.0 going live, I was going to start my 7 year olds in Year 1 and my 9 year olds in Year 2. My 7 year olds are not reading yet and my 9 year olds are not necessarily "on grade level" with their reading.
I'm considering using the AO 2.0 since I've got a group of my own here to simplify things a bit. I'm wondering A) Will it even simplify? B) Should I put my 9 yo's in Form 2A or do 1A with everyone?
If we do separate forms what (if anything) can we do together or would effectively I be running 2 separate homeschools?

If you were to use groups for your 3, then you would put them all in the same one. If you used AO year 1 last year with the twins, then you could start in 1B. Groups is a smaller list of books and they are arranged differently. So you may end up repeating books and having to replace them with other books if you do it that way.
You could also stick with both year 1 for the 7 and year 2 for the twins and utilize a form 1 rotation. Which basically combines many books but not all of them.

What is the dynamic when you have all four together? I often find that working with 1-2 of my children at once is much easier than trying to manage the dynamics of group work.

At your children's ages, I would expect to read everything aloud regardless of whether you use traditional AO or AO for groups. AO for groups would only be helpful if you use Form 1 for everyone.

If you put them in years 1 and 2, you could still read Tales from Shakespeare, Parables from Nature and Pilgrim's Progress together (we read Little Pilgrim's Progress when I had boys in years 1 and 2).Regardless of what you choose, there is still much you can do together: artist study, composer study, drawing, handicrafts, folksongs, hymns, and nature study (and probably more that I missed!). You could also enjoy poetry and free read read-alouds together as a group (any of the form 1 recommendations would be appropriate for your kids).
