As you can see, there are several components to the study guides. Since guided literature is not something we have done in quite some time we had to create a schedule which worked best for us. The girls had guided literature days three times each week. This worked because it gave them time digest the previous chapter, and it kept their desire to read the books they selected intact. My youngest daughter and I read Lassie Come-Home together on most days. There are days where she wants to read it alone, and I follow up with the discussion questions. My oldest daughter decided she wanted to read Heidi alone. For her, I discuss her comprehension questions with her as she completes the lesson. This helps her to think about what is being asked since she tends to not always understand the question by the way it is being asked.
