Happy2BaMom Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 We are in our 4th week of using SOTW1 with dd, 7/first grade. I'm going to stick with it for now, largely because I have no idea what else to use, but it is just not working...she listens to the story and is almost completely unable to answer the questions afterwards. I have tried both the CDs as well as reading to her. I can see her mind wandering during the reading and she cannot do summaries AT ALL (today, she said that Hammurabi was a city during her summary...and this was after I went through the comprehension questions and answers with her). I'm somewhat mystified by this because my son is on SOTW4 & he has always loved and always thrived on all of the SOTWs - easily able to answer the questions, always could do at least a passable summary, etc. I really like the idea of going through history chronologically, and I want to keep doing this in some format. I don't want to give up on SOTW too early, but, on the other hand, she absorbs almost nothing, so I'm wondering how long I continue before trying something else. WWYD? What should I do? Keep going with SOTW and hope that she will catch on eventually? Switch to another chronological curriculum (is there one out there)? :bigear: Thanks in advance for the help!
