Using a book from Total Language Plus, we'll be writing and learning more about Tolkien's book, The Hobbit. I've never used this company's resources before, so this will be new for us. It should take the average student about 12 weeks to complete the book, is what I've been told. Emperor has tremendous, tremendous difficulty writing. At least, I imagine him to be quite behind, but I have nothing to measure him against.
Another item I got - which I cannot WAIT to use, but think perhaps is best to do last, is the Lord of the Rings study from Veritas Press. LOTR is a more involved, complicated book and I should rather work through some of the easier items on our list first. And yes, Elf read LOTR to us through this school year, but Emperor has not read it yet for himself.
