Mom-ninja. Posted June 28, 2012 Share Posted June 28, 2012 My ds is almost done with WWE 4. We are on week 29. I have posted quite a few times here with my frustration in teaching my ds dictation and narration. I've wondered many times about ditching WWE and using something else. I kept at it for two reasons. First, because the educational psychologist, who diagnosed ds with dyslexia, looked over WWE and said it looks perfect for him in how it is set up to teach writing. Second, because I've read and listened to SWB on writing and I really like her view on it. So I kept with it. We struggled. We cried. We became frustrated. We slowed down. We broke it up. My mantra was, "Just keep swimming." For the past two weeks my ds has given me really good narrations. This week he wrote his narration on his own without narrating to me first. He has never been able to do this! Of course spelling and other editing is needed but the gist of the narration is exactly what we've been working so hard to achieve. I'm doing the happy dance and we can't wait to start WWS. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
