    We started our school year just over a month ago using a classical curriculum, and I would like to transition to a CM-style of curriculum.  I’ve received so much wisdom and have been reading quite a bit about CM.  My 4th grader has pretty strong reading comprehension skills, but the style of literature is somewhat new to him with classical and CM.  I read in 4th grade, children should read their materials on their own.  We clearly have a habit of me still reading to him or us taking turns.  He is certainly capable of reading on his own.  He enjoys me by his side, sometimes too much, but is there anything wrong with working on attentiveness and continuing to read to or with him?  We can certainly work towards less of this.

    Nothing wrong with it at all  – you can read as you are building his narration skills. As you both are getting more comfortable with that, you can transition the books over to him.

    Okedoke, thank you so much!  I hope to get my bearings soon to make this transition!
