Currently my oldest is in private school but only for this year. Next year he will be back homeschooling again. He hates, hates, hates writing....reading....pretty much everything except science experiments and art projects lol. Anyway, he can't put a simple story on paper to save his life. I try to have him tell me the story in words (with the goal of having him hear it out loud then write it) but even that is hard for him. For example, for homework he had to write a story on how to build a snowman using atleast 4 sentences. It turned out like this: I will get some coal. I will get a hat. I will get a carrot. I will roll a ball. He's almost 8 and in 2nd grade. Is this normal? Any ideas to help with this?
