So he is starting to play school (or as he told Scott tonight, "teach"). He wrote "today" on the board all by himself (as they have on the board in their classroom)
and then wrote October after I spelled it for him (look at that grip!).
He had me come to the board to to write the "3," but soon took my advice and got some new students.
Between this, playing the brother when he played house today, and taking his tools outside to play construction worker on his jungle gym, I'd say we are getting more into imaginative play. Yippee!
