Can I (or should I) try to start this mid-year?
ABSOLUTELY! You already know this group of kids and they know you. Introduce pieces of the program. Make it part of your current centers program as you get stations prepped. Offer the choice to just early finishers (although the ones that finish early are not the ones that need the hands-on practice). Even if you do not launch the program until next year, you can utilize components of it now. Test the stations out. See what rules you want to put in place for your future classes. When school starts next fall, you will be ready to go!
