“I’m going in here,” he announced. “I am working.” Zach has never been in a Montessori classroom, so I was a little curious as to exactly what working entails for a three-and-a-half-year-old.
“I’m making a book,” he went on. Since he cannot yet write, he explained, he would be making his book out of stickers.
This kind of ambition, I decided, warranted a bit of encouragement, if only because we could use another income around here. So, we hit Staples and picked up some supplies. Now, he has gone multi-media, with glitter sticks, construction paper, glue, and scissors. And, I must say, the book is looking mighty pretty.
Unfortunately, I am finding that somehow his book project is leaving me even less time for mine.
