basschick Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 I have a question about the dictation for Writing With Ease. We are now on the 3rd book with my oldest. When we do the dictation, I don't see how my son is supposed to remember 3 sentences word for word before writing them down, even if I repeat them for him 25 times. What is the point of memorizing a huge chunk of words before writing them down? Isn't sentence-by-sentence enough? My husband was listening to us do dictation one day and he was dumb-founded by what I was asking my 8yo son to do. I am now doing a lot of sentence-by-sentence work. I will read the whole selection through a few times and then we break it down. We do the first sentence, he repeats it back to me and then writes it down. Then I say the 2nd sentence, he repeats it back to me and writes it down, and so on. What are you all doing at this level? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
