What I realized is that my limited English vocabulary already causes some obstacles in teaching. What does that mean is that I don't maximize Eaton's potential once we read books. I use the same vocabulary and the same type of questions. This book opened my eyes a little bit and shown me other way of asking questions I would never use. That was the reason I purchased that book. Maybe for English speaking people wouldn't that be a problem. (And .. cattails!!! Yeah, I didn't know English name of these plants)
I'm going to show you a video of our first attempt to this type of activity. Eaton surprised me a little bit by asking me to work in school area at 9 pm. And, because I really wanted to start that book ASAP I did that with him the other evening.
Here is the picture that we were looking at together on the video.
Here are 2 pages with questions you can ask your child. This is the first set from that book. Questions at the end of the book are more detailed and the difficulty level increases.
One thing that surprised me a little bit is that last 6 pictures in that book are just normal (not animated) pictures so they are not so colorful like the first ones.
Also, before watching this video I want to mention that Eaton is going through another period of "Being in his own world". He pretends play a LOT, he uses knowledge, names, characters from books and movies and he incorporates that into our playing/learning time. This is really beautiful, amazing stage and I love everything about it, and you can see that on the video. He even mentioned baby jaguar from Diego movie he watched that day. And by the way, Eaton didn't saw batman movie yet, but he loves to play with that plastic toys all the time.
