Narration variation

We’ve been doing Charlotte Mason style narrations based on readings for over a year, but now we are branching out a little bit.  Sometimes I ask Antonia to tell me back a story from the perspective of a particular character, possibly not a major one.  She’s also been doing a little translating of easier passages from French into English.  This is not an easy task, and implies a pretty high level of comprehension.  I wouldn’t actually have asked her to do this for more than a few sentences, put I got a whole chapter of a book!  Most of her narration is still completely undirected.
