Aludlam Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 Language Arts have got me stumped. I have gone back and forth - back and forth. We have done WWE1 and WWE2 - some of WWE3. My dd would be much further along, if I liked doing WWE. Nothing against the book, or SWB. I just want to get away from the workbook and apply these techniques to things we are already reading --- Yes, I know this was SWB's intention when she originally wrote WTM and Complete Writer - and that the workbooks are just for ease of use. But, I can't figure out how to actually do that. Please hold my hand and help me. I know step one will be to actually read everything that she reads (which I am terrible about). Then what? How do I physically make this writing happen? Does she read for an hour on Monday, then write a summary on Tuesday? How long of a summary? How long of a book? -- I need some examples of how this is to happen. Which things should I have her narrate? She was such a reluctant reader, that now I just LOVE that she reads for pleasure and hate making it work. fyi: I'm looking to change to possibly R&S4 English -- still on the fence about a grammar program. Please help me think this though. I have a cold, so please excuse typos and things that just make no sense. :001_smile: thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
