So one of the few battles I've been fighting during these first few weeks of homeschooling has been writing. Boys typically develop handwriting skills later than girls and Clayton is even farther behind than the typical boy his age. He has never been interested in coloring and almost all of the prewriting practice I've had him do has been The Most Terrible Activity on the Planet. I decided today that I'll fight no more. If he's interested, I'll let him hold the writing utensil, and if not, I'll just hold it for him and write down what we're doing for him, if need be. And of course on the day I decide that, he was a willing helper in writing some numbers down!!
