I can stick those few missed books into morning time. I think my girls will still have separate math and reading, and probably Spanish. And of course, it will really only be my youngest child's first year that they will be in Form 1; by Form 2 I would probably have each girl just start regular Year 4 as they reach it. Does this seem feasible?

I think the only real disadvantage is if you continue on to Forms 2 and 3 because then it really does get lighter and you miss more books. That's a big plus for schools and co-ops where they realistically can't assign as much, but I think it's a disadvantage in a home situation where more can be done (unless there are family circumstances where something substantially lighter is necessary -- such as a child who truly needs a much lighter load).

I've been hearing moms talk about doing Form 1, and then moving their kids into Year 4 (of "AO Classic"? [cheesy grin]). I hadn't considered that as an option, but I think it makes sense.
