I ordered the books yesterday from this website; they've just arrived
!! What a fantastic service!
They look exactly the sort of thing I need. Now I've just (
)got to encourage/ bribe my DS to sit and do something with them! I told him last night that his teacher had told me that he had super words and story ideas and should just get them down on paper. DS told me "but it's so boring!". He told me that his hand was slower than his ideas brain and so he got frustrated trying to get it all down! I think part of it must be simply strengthening his writing hand, which will come with practice. But I also think that he has very elaborate ideas and he gets mired down in them, rather than having a short, sharp structure which will get him achieving something in the time. I don't want to kill his creativity but perhaps I can get him to think particularly about the words/ phrases as a succinct way of expressing himself?
Do you think (she writes, desperately!)?
