Early on in the year, I let my young 1st grade write the verse out over several days or in several sittings throughout the day. I kept the teacher's manual version of the verse (from the appendix) in view on the table.caod wrote:My just turned six year old will be doing the first grade curriculum this year. As I look at it I realize that she will be expected to write out the Bible verse very early on. Writing is certainly not her strength. I don't think she is "delayed" but she doesn't enjoy a lot of handwriting and is not exceptionally good at it yet. Are there some of you that have made accommodations for your first grader in this regard and if so what were those accommodations? What should really be expected of a first grader in terms of writing. She is a very young first grader.
As the year went on, she was able to do more and easily finished the verse in one setting.
