My name is Heather Naugle and I live in San Antonio, Texas. We are brand new to Charlotte Mason style learning. My daughter is eight and officially a second grader. We have intentionally done very little schooling this year: partly because I just brought her home from public school which was not going well, partly because I didn't want to frustrate her and partly because I was waiting until after the SCM seminar which was held here in San Antonio last week. Needless to say I got a lot of information and inspiration and I am very excited to have discovered what I think will be a fun way of life, exactly what my daughter needed and not a moment too soon.
Today was our second day with the Pathway Readers book Busy Times and although she gets the mechanics of reading she simply does not want to read more than 2 pages. In this particular book she's not getting enough of the story to make it interesting in that short of a lesson. Should I continue to let her read such a small selection out of this book or should we go back to the beginning of the stories with the First Steps book so that she gets farther into it before her attention is spent?
