Writing assignments can be overwhelming for students with certain learning and attention issues. Your child may have an overall plan for how to manage big projects. But when he sits down to start a writing assignment, he may not know how to break it down into smaller tasks. The key is to identify specific chunks that will make the work manageable for your child.
End of the Year Memory Book: Autobiography of a Fifth Grader This autobiography project is simple, clean, and organized!
