michaeljenn Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 We just strated TOG today and my children are complaining that: 1. there is too much to read 2. the reading is hard 3. there are soooo many questions to answer This is mainly coming from my 9 and 12yo... my 13yo is really fine, although he is a bit overwhelmed by all the reading. My 9yo is in UG and my 12 and 13 are in D. I have always read aloud to them for history in the past, and I have not really required that much reading because I always read it to them as a family. They usually read a chapter or two out of their current chapter book a day, and that was it. I see now what a mistake this was. I am having a hard time discerning if they are *lazy, or are *really having trouble. My 12yo tends to get very flustered very easily... no matter how easy the concept, so this may be the issue too! Does TOG get better, or easier? Has anyone elses children had a hard time adjusting? Oh, I am having my UG read everything in the the primary resources. My D are also reading everything in the primary resources too. SIGH... I feel like I have failed my kiddo's in a way by reading everything, meaning history and science aloud to them, and then not requiring much reading from them. Advice?
