If you purchase a digital bundle for Volume 7 (Spring 2017), you will notice that there are only two units listed in that material—Unit 19 and Unit 21. Don’t panic! All of the content—including Christmas Unit 17—is there! Here’s what’s going on.
Because the 2-session Easter Unit 20 falls in the middle of Unit 19, we need to merge these two units together in My Curriculum Manager so that the Easter sessions schedule for April 9 and April 16 and not after Unit 19 finishes. Again, everything is there—it’s just that Unit 20 is rolled into Unit 19 for one larger unit. As you work through this volume, trust the session titles (notice that Easter sessions and green zip folders include EASTER in the titles), not the unit and session numbers for the expanded Unit 19.
When you reach Unit 20, you will find the zip folders (green buttons) after the Unit 19 zip folders on the main page. The individual unit items also appear after all of the Unit 19 items. If you have a preschool and kids bundle, here is the order of how the items appear:
- Unit 19 Kids
- Unit 19 Preschool
- Unit 20 (Easter) Kids
- Unit 20 (Easter) Preschool
I have attached two screen caps that may help you see how the sessions are supposed to be scheduled if you begin the content according to our suggested use date of March 5. Also, there is a screen cap showing the organization of the Kids zip folders for Unit 19 and 20.
We know that this is not ideal, but it is the best solution we have found for the Christmas and Easter Units. Let me know if you have any questions or need help getting your Spring volume set up.
