And He's Knitting ...
Proof that waiting can work and that skills are so much easier to learn when the child is ready. I have introduced knitting twice before with frustrating results. Today T-Guy was bored, I suggested knitting, and he was making stitches on his own within 5 minutes! Not only are his fingers better able to move in a coordinated fashion, his brain understands the sequence and can repeat it reliably.
The verse, as best I could remember it:
In the front door, out through the back
Run right round and grab your sack
Back through the front door
and off jumps Jack.
