Less than two full weeks in: he picked out a coloring book, crayons, and sat down to get to work. No request for a gripper to help him hold it proper, he’s got this.
(Disclosure: before he started kindergarten he had absolutely no interest in coloring.)
Now, he picks coloring books on after school program days, to bring with him to “work on.” Two weeks, that’s all it took.
Yes, I shared this all with his teacher. I’m sure she doesn’t hear this enough. 💕
