Yesterday Elchanan started his photo project with Zach. Here are two photos he took.
I'm hoping that in addition to it feeding his creativity, and my teaching him the art of photography will make him a great photographer, it will also set a positive tone for his day that he can carry into the classroom. We have issues with him refusing to cooperate in class, and there's the ongoing morning tantrums about not wanting to go to school and/or the after school program. But I'm hoping that if we can distract him with something positive and fun in the morning, he'll carry that feeling throughout the day and behave better in class.
And tomorrow, I'm DEFINITELY taking my own camera on our walk to school.
