Mama:"Oh Look, I see a horse".
Burke: (with prompting) I see a horse
Mama:"Horse, do you want to go for a ride in the wagon, yes or no?"
Burke: (with prompting) Yes, I want the horse
Mama: Oh, that was a good choice!
...none of the animals said no and during this game, none of the choices were bad!
He was having so much fun that I doubt he had any idea that our fun game was really packed with lots of learning and hard work!
My learning goals for this game were this:
1.) To practice using one of his "goal" sentences for school- I see a________
2) To practice answering yes and no questions-Yes or No, I want/don't want
3.) To introduce the concept of choices-"Oh, that was a good choice"
My plan is to build on his vocabulary as well as really emphasize the use of full sentences. Also, I want him to learn about making choices. He is really pushing the limits with his behavior and I feel that introducing the concept of making good and bad choices will help with our discipline techniques!
