Absolutely, if she's happy with that then go for it! (I think making students work at their chronological age level makes as much sense as working according to their shoe size...)

You can also enrich her learning by getting her to both do and to MAKE crossword puzzles; play word games (e.g. Scrabble); and pehaps look at books like Red Hot Root Words and others of the same ilk, which introduce the Latin bases for many words :)

I generally move them onto the next one just because they need to work on something, I can't leave that open for nothing to be done.
