    I have been reading that written narration should begin by age 10 or so. We are just starting with CM and my 10 year old has dysgraphia. (Meaning he struggles with the act of printing, not with coming up with what to write) He also needs some experience narrating, I think, before I require anything written. He’s an advanced reader and has no trouble with writing stories or paragraphs, as long as I scribe for him. He is learning to type and is probably about six months away from being able to type narrations. He’s also learning cursive. Is it OK to wait until age 12 to do written narration? Or would that delay the process too much? He’ll be 11 next month. I hope I do not sound ignorant. I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    I think it’s completely fine to wait!

    I think so, too! My youngest doesn’t have dysgraphia but he does have a reluctance when it comes to the act of writing. He’s just kind of slow getting there, I guess. I still transcribe for him and let him copy it (taking his time, of course!) and we do a lot of oral narrations throughout the week.  My son is 11 and has been a CM student his entire life, so I would not worry or push unnecessarily when it comes to the written act of written narrations 🙂

    Thank you! I’m going to wait until he’s able to type.
