As I was going through lessons, I thought to myself, isn't 3rd grade a little young to be teaching about writing papers? I know, I will get a lot of back lash for saying this, but for my son, who is behind because of learning struggles, teaching about writing papers right now is not ideal. I debated on saying that because I know there are going to be a lot of opinions that teaching to write papers at a young age is beneficial, which is fine, but for right now my son is not there yet.
My daughter is a freshman in highschool and she still comes to me for help with writing papers, like she will ask what the different paper types are and what she should write about, etc. Quick background, she has also been part of a virtual school, so they go by the same lesson plans as brick and mortar schools, so she started to learn about writing papers in the 3rd grade and she still struggles.
I will love to hear your thoughts about learning to write papers in the 3rd grade. Let me know in the comments. (*be respectful to others opinions, any nasty comments or replies to comments will be deleted.)
