Unit 3 – 12 Week Schedule

This is an example schedule. This is based on Charlotte Mason’s schedule of solfa lessons twice a week for ten minutes each. Singing through the listed lessons may not fill ten minutes. If you have additional time, you can add in previously learned songs to fill the ten minutes.

*All the Pretty Little Horses is a lullaby that will help calm children after many of the active songs and activities in this unit. Sing it through multiple times until the children have regained the ability to sit quietly. (You could also use your monthly hymn or other lullaby to the same effect.)
