Day-by-Day has been designed to guide you daily in academic choices. Every objective necessary for each grade level has been planned into the lessons. At the beginning of each chapter you will find the Unit Preparation section which lists the number of suggested teaching days, the theme for the chapter, which pages of The Weaver you need to read before teaching, points you should know, books from the Resource Sets you will be using during this chapter, supplies needed for preparation of the unit, and specific information regarding the implementation of Wisdom Words. There are three alternative uses for Day-by-Day. One alternative is to use it as it is, within the time frame given. A second use is to use the Day-by-Day only until you are comfortable with the program and lesson planning. You may then arrange your own lesson plans by following the directions in the volume. A third alternative is to use Day-by-Day only as a guideline for your lessons, creating as desired, reserving the structure for times of high need (such as births, deaths, illnesses, or exhaustion). However you choose to use it, Day-by-Day was created to help you. Use it as your tool.
