What should I do if I don’t complete a lesson in one session?
In general, we recommend that you aim to complete each lesson in one session. If you find you frequently need to break up lessons, you may need to set aside more time for the lessons.
If you are able to anticipate when you won’t have time to complete a lesson and plan ahead, you might plan to teach phonemic awareness and phonics in one session and phonemic awareness and sight words in a second session. Have the students read the Little Books (Beginning) or Story Book (Extension) from the previous lesson in the first session and the new story in the second session. If a lesson is cut short unexpectedly, continue where you left off in the next session.
