First we watched the video about the associative law of addition, then I demonstrated it with our plastic math animals. My oldest understood it quickly (really, he’s the only one who should) and asked to demonstrate it with their stuffies.
Then we watched a second video (boy, were they excited!). This one about linking verbs. I paused the video in a few places to talk about how action verbs are different from linking verbs. I then drew pictures of if the verbs were actually action verbs to demonstrate how the meaning would change. Aren’t my drawings amazing? ; ) The cat is feeling cotton balls and the cheese is smelling a stinky diaper.
“Read Lolo!” The book we picked up used from amazon for our Africa studies (the story is located in South Africa) is my little girl’s current favorite book.
I just love watching them learn. How’s the view where you are?
