I LOVE when someone else does all this work for me.

It really depends on you, your kids, & how quickly you want to move through a lesson. I find that some lessons we can move through in a matter of 15-30 minutes. Especially when we are just reading the picture books! Then other lessons, lượt thích the cooking or art, can take longer depending on what we’re creating. It is recommended that you complete 4 lessons per week for a semester study or 2 lessons per week for a year-long study. But I just go with the flow of my kiddos and their interest levels. I hope that helps answer your question.
