Guest Posted October 25, 2012 Share Posted October 25, 2012 (edited) We have started doing a lot more narration this year and my son is having some trouble constructing his sentences. One of his narration sentences from science today was: The planets, when they go around the sun and end up back in the same place, it has been a whole year. I am trying not to disrupt the narration itself, as I have read this derails them. However, once we are done, I'm just not sure how to tell him to do it right. This is typical of most of his narrations; I know what he is saying, but they don't really come out right. I tend to say, "is there a way we could say this sentence differently?" but it normally gets even more skewed. Fwiw, he has done a lot of copywork (WWE1) and we have read a lot of good books since he was little. Ideas? I am feeling like such a failure this year! ETA: I guess I didn't really ask a question. I'm just not sure what to do. Do I actually re-arrange the sentence to sound better and he will eventually catch on? Do I "tell" him something specific?
