I do believe that taking time to write is important, and your student may need that.
Extra time planning and organizing is a good thing, it means that the writing content and organization will be stronger.
I want to encourage writing SKILLS, not just quantity or box ticking.
I want to encourage a positive process. If the writing of these chreias is generating frustration for you and or your student, please connect with me. My hope in life is to encourage joy in writing, for everyone.

To be completed this week: WRITING TIME—Complete a little every day. This is such a valuable time to review and improve writing skills. Daily work is better than one day of solid W and R. working on chunks each day makes a stronger skill set.
