Homeschool Lesson Planning: Wordly Wise
Note: Wordly Wise has changed a little since this article was written.
Wordly Wise books are easy to plan. All of the books are similar, just different words. Each book has 20 lists and each list has 5 lessons, A-E. Plus there are 6 review puzzles scattered at intervals in the book. If you counted all of that, it is 106 lessons.

There are other things to consider though, the E activity is an "in context" reading. You might want to allow 2 days for these in your schedule, that brings the number up to 126 lessons. One more thing to consider is that some of the puzzles are very long. You could allow 2 days for those and that brings the number of lessons up to 132 lessons.
132 lessons divided by 4 (days a week) would equal 33 weeks of Wordly Wise with 4 lessons per week. The plan for that would look something like this:
|Study word list do 1A||1B||1C||1D||5th day off|
|1E||1E||Study word list do 2A||2B||5th day off|
|2C||2D||2E||2E||5th day off|
|Study word list do 3A||3B||3C||3D||5th day off|
Another plan would be to complete each list and have 2 days off between lists.
The plan for that would look something like this:
|Study word list do 1A||1B||1C||1D||1E|
|1E||off||off||Study word list do 2A||2B|
|off||Study word list do 3A||3B||3C||3D|
|3E||3E||off||off||and so on...|
