If you don’t mind using multiple programs or if you have an age gap of 4 or more years between your students, we recommend:

  1. The Classic series — You can do this by placing your older student in one of the logic stage programs, while the younger students use the corresponding grammar stage books. For instance, if you have a first, second, and fifth grader, your older student could work through Biology for the Logic Stage with some independence, while you lead the younger two through Biology for the Grammar Stage. The topics won't line up perfectly, but there are suggestions in the front of each of our logic stage guides for lining the two programs up.
