    I apologize if there is a topic already on this subject, but I have questions about Oral Narration. Specifically, how to teach your child to do it. I’ve just started CM (it was a last minute decision for my curriculum) and I’m struggling with knowing what is acceptable as an answer.

    My boys are 7 and 8 (almost 9), and I don’t know how strict I should be with their answers. Should I just be happy if they get the words out? I tell them “Tell me the story about what you just read” because it seems to click in their head better than “Tell me about what you just read,” if that makes sense.

    Are there any good resources that you can recommend on this topic? Or just advice would be great too!

    I think the Narration Q&A series in our blog archives would be a good resource to start with. You might give those articles a read and then let us know if you have further questions. We’re happy to help!


    Thank you!


    Should oral or written narration be required daily after each book? With so many books being read throughout our day (independent and read alouds) I’m wondering if I’m requiring either too much or not enough. Would appreciate any thoughts.
