How did it go?
A little challenging for my oldest.
Phonics, math, copy work, and free readings,
there was no change.
This was our challenge.
Narration was a new concept for my son
and frankly for me too.
I tried reading a paragraph at a time.
This did not help
especially with the more difficult readings.
But, reading two or three sentences at a time
This made for slow going.
We did not get through all the readings of the week.
We will try to catch up this week.
Did my son enjoy the readings?
Yes and no.
Doing the narrations seemed to frustrate him.
The stories do not read smoothly
due to the frequent pausing with doing the narrations.
The dots did not connect for him.
So, to try to eliminate his frustration,
I read the readings through without
stopping so he could hear the story flow.
This was done after narrating completed.
Dots connected then.
