Oli is now a first grader. This has been a big and scary transition for him. Many tears have been shed along the way. He seems to, finally, be settling in and actually looking forward to school. It helps that his teacher is loving and fun. She seems to know just what makes my boy tick. Yesterday he came home and proudly showed me his “pointing finger.”
My beginning reader has to wear it to point at words as he reads to me.
The finger is getting lots of use and Oli is looking foward to going back to school to get more books to point at. Who would have thought that a scary, gory finger would make the long and scary school day so much fun.
