Re: Foster Care Present Question?
I'm just lurking because I'd eventually like to foster, but from the perspective of a teacher, I would definitely do books and coloring supplies. I've had students come to school without a clue how to hold a writing utensil, and it takes them a long time to catch up with respect to being able to write nice enough to be able to read the writing. It's not a terribly big deal that they come into school not knowing how to hold a pencil, but the thing is they get very frustrated when trying to learn to write and even draw.
