Rice Art

Caden is really into spelling his and everyone's name lately.  Usually he writes them all by himself and the letters are in reverse.  So Caden is spelled NEDAC.  Cute, huh?

For some reason he was a little scared of the glue today.  Not sure why.  He usually wants to cover an entire sheet of paper with glue.  So I helped him.  Not sure if that was the right thing to do.  I'm no education expert.  I probably should have crafted my own page right beside him. I know teaching them to do things by themselves is important at this age and I shouldn't just swoop in and say, okay, I'll do it for you.

What would you have done?

There will be plenty of opportunities for him to do it by himself. Keeping him engaged in creative play is important, too. I have done and would do the same thing.
