Hi everyone,

My son is 17 m o. We started LR not long ago. I believe Doman says to show each set of 10 bits of knowledge 3 times a day for 10 days and then start adding 1 bit of knowledge and retire one in each set every day. Is there a way to do that with LR?
I see that some files in the library have 5 bits, some 10, some 20, etc. What is your method of showing them to your children? Has it been effective?

Thanks you so much to everyone who responds.
Can't wait to use all the information in the LR library with my son.

Anybody can share their experience please? It's hard to believe that nobody uses those files/slides in the LR library...

Hello Oasis,

I think the reason people hesitate to answer you is because there's not really any precise answer to your question.

If you were to collect a big list of items, like all ShenLi's Dinosaurs for instance, the simplest way would be to create your own category and select 10 dinosaur slides for the category.  You can play that same category 3x day, 10 days in a row, and then replace one everyday from then on in.  You could then start adding facts to the slides you are abandoning, so instead of them saying "Tyrannosaurus" you could have the slide say, "Tyrannosauruses were the biggest meat-eaters.", make 10 of the fact slides and start playing that in addition to the original plan.  (Once you start abandoning them, start adding the next fact, until you get to 10, as per Doman.) 

This whole system get tricky fast, and on top of that, your little one might think that 30 repeats is a bit "overkill", so that's where the course builder comes in.  It might take you some time to figure it out, but I would like to encourage you to start playing with the course builder because it makes your life so much easier.  When you find out your little one wants to speed the learning process up, you can adjust the course you've build in a minute for less repeats, more/less slides per lesson etc.

The big job is to collect facts, the library has tons of slides, but not a lot of facts.  The reason is because this is a lot of work.  Easy to create 100 slides of some category, it gets harder when you want to add 1000 facts to them.  BUT, working as a team, this is becoming a reality, as you will soon see with the country course.

The length of a lesson will depend on your little one.  For me, mine went through stages, sometimes he'll watch many, other times he will not.  When you find a long list in the library, chances are they're not suppose to be used in one sitting.  Now after 2 years of flashing, W can sit through long lessons, but then it's not likely he'll ask for it everyday.  Short lessons (6 or 8 flash cards per type) still works best, but then we watch different courses back to back, with some flashing mixed with stories, videos and slow paced facts.  Some days we'll do long hour long sessions in front of the PC, other days we'll split the session up in 3 or 4 small sessions, and then others we don't even come close to the PC.

The sooner you start trying it out and playing with ideas with your little one, the sooner you'll figure out what works best for you and your boy.  The only "hint" I really want to stress is to start very small, he might sit and watch long lessons initially, but you don't want him to grow tired of it at any stage, because then he might not sit for even the shortest lesson.

Good luck!

Sorry to jump on the thread but was wondering what the address of the facebook group is as I noticed things have been quieter on here recently.

Thank you, MamaofWill,
That's a very valuable suggestion about creating my own  course. I have played with it a little bit today, and I think I have figured most of it out. Thank you so much! I will also follow your advice of not making lessons too long.

I'm also interested about the name of the facebook group.

Yes, MamaofWill explained it well. That is how I am doing as well. Course builder takes a bit longer to plan and arrange, but in the long run it makes the whole learning process easy and adjustable to the need of your child. We love it!

I also did adding additional EK facts to the slides.

For example when I teach chemical elements, I first get my kids familiar with the names using the categories in the library. But then  I also created sets of categories for each chemical element, with 10 facts each ( per Doman). I simply typed in the fact as a sentence into LR category, added pictures and videos to each fact and we are going through all the chemical elements in that manner.

Little Reader is simply amazing for creating and organizing Encyclopedic Knowledge lessons! I can create lesson for each topic separate and learn it in depth, and then later when I have enough to work with I cam easily combine them and  create an awesome EK course with fast flash, introducing facts, review cycle. I can use it as an awesome review of the materials we learned, and I can also use it as a stand alone EK course.

I do it that way so I do not need to wait till I have all the materials ready, but I can use them already as I create them category by category with my older girl, but then when I have the course ready I also re-use all that work for my two younger boys Doman style!

If you would like to see my Periodic Table Hydrogen book I created Doman style using Little Reader, Hydrogen EK facts with pictures and videos and a short video EK category to go along with it, PM me. It is a bit large to add to the library ( just above the size limit) but I can share with you the link to download it and try  yes !
