    First grade is far too young to force a boy to write. Let his fine motor skills develop. Then begin to require regular writing in third or fourth grade. This is a journey, not a race.

    My 1st grader is having a terrible time writing because he is aks to be creative and it's so hard for him. He gets frustrated and cries and just refuses. I would like to just say "it's not for him" and not make him do it. But he's in public school is required to. They say he will have more and more writing in the years to come. How to help him to be creative and confident?

    For my book, I would have him make illustrations and label them, rather than writing lengthy narrations. Oral narrations are great for retention. They don’t have to be written down. However, you can type out his narrations, if you like.
