mo2 Posted February 6, 2012 Share Posted February 6, 2012 My 9yo, that is. I can't figure out if she simply refuses to write or if she really *can't* do it. She can do the physical act of writing. She does copywork well. If I dictate a sentence, she can write it (although I have to spell nearly every word aloud for her). But if I ask her to write a narration down, she freezes up. She says she can't do it. If I say, "Write me a sentence about a dog," she can't do it. We tried CW and the first lesson was to re-write one of Aesop's fables, and she couldn't do it. Of course she knew very well what the story was about, but she couldn't write it. She gets very upset, freaks out, even cries, until eventually I give it up and say we'll try again later. But later, we just have a repeat of the same. So what is going on here? What am I not seeing? *Can* she write? Or is she being super-amazingly stubborn? I'm debating between IEW and WWE. Which would be best for this situation? Should I do both? Would that be overkill? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
