8yo boy - writing and LA?
I am coming back to FIAR and was planning to just add math and some sort of writing/LA for my son. He tells everyone he is a third grader but with a May birthday I would really be fine with him being a second grader. I would say he is working closer on that level in most subjects. He is a really strong reader - doesn't enjoy it. His handwriting is pretty bad, I think he just needs to write more.
I am thinking of just adding Simply Charlotte Masons spelling program. Just dictation/copy work. Or picking something from our FIAR readings.
We have Catholic Heritage Language of God, it just seems so disconnected to real life. And I know anything he has done there is just in and out of his brain.
My husband is concerned that we do better with the 8yo. My oldest went to high school and has said he wished he did more writing as it really showed in HS that he hadn't had much. My fault, we have always been really relaxed.
