Again, thanks for the web sites. I'm am still trying to figure out where to go for various topics. I subscribed for two days, but the mail was overwhelming!
We have recently switched to the following method.
We read (she reads to herself, or she reads aloud to me, or I read to her) then she narrates back to me the content.
As we reach certian points in our history study, I have her narrate a report to me. Then the next day I dictate it back to her while she writes it in her copy book. She usually draws her own pictures or maps.
The problem I have is that I'm not sure she is getting enough grammar. We also have not talked about organizing her thoughts as you would in writing a "regular" report...i.e. note cards etc.
Are there any guidelines about how to progress. Are we behind significantly for 6th grade? I'm not hung up on grade level, but I would like some sort of guide.
We are doing GREAT in math.
