DJ was excited to receive his first personal tool set. I purchased this set at Lowes, it is by the company Red Tools. The picture shows everything that was included in the kit, excluding the wood. I purchased some pine wood and had the worker at Lowes cut it down.

Before presenting the lesson I used the ruler and made lines with a Sharpie so that DJ could use this as a guide while sawing. Drawing the line worked out great it gave him a focal point that he really needed.

Admiring his work!!
Right back at it.
I saw these free wood samples at Home Depot and decided to pick them up, my first thought was maybe creating a sensorial work. I bet DJ could find something to do with these now.
