Schedule for Singapore Challenging Word Problems

After struggling our way through CWP 3 at the end of last year, I've decided to spread out the word problems over the course of the year this time. Jessie will start at the review section of CWP 3 for the first few weeks before moving on to CWP 4. That should keep up from reaching a topic in the word problems book before covering it in the textbook. My basic plan is to do 2 regular problems or 1 challenging problem a day for most of the sections. If all goes well, we'll stop CWP 4 next spring when we reach the review section and save it for the following year. I put this schedule on a separate page for two reasons. First, I didn't want to have to squint to read the text or put fewer weeks on a page. Second, this allows us to go through the CWP books at whatever pace works best for Jessie. If we need to repeat, I can back her up just in the word problems book without having to make a bunch of revisions to the regular math schedule.
