US1 and USII Guides Suggested Time Allotments

Post by my3sons » Sun Jul 29, 2018 4:02 pm

Hi ladies! Carrie and I just pulled out Shaw’s schedule from USI and USII and figured out suggested time allotments for each of these guides. These times reflect the time it took to complete each day’s plans at the beginning of the year. As students progress, they might complete their days more quickly, as they become more familiar with the guide. Hope this helps!
