When I was giving her this lesson, I was very methodical, deliberate, and thoughtful with my movements. I said "hmm" when I was thinking about which knobbed cylinder to put in each place. When E was completing the work, she kept saying "HUMMM," and now she calls this work "HUMMM." When I ask her if she wants to do "HUMMM," she excitedly shakes her head "no" which means "yes." (she's gotten a little confused about the difference between shaking and nodding her head this week...so cute).
Here is a video of E working with the knobbed cylinders. I could watch this video over and over again. I love watching the way her mind works. The mind of a child is an amazing thing.
She didn't finish the knobbed cylinder, but we left it out and finished it later.
Awwwww!! That is just *swooningly* cute! She really said "HUMMMM"! Adorable! And super smart--look at those prehensile little hands...ReplyDelete
WOW!! This is really impressive! You did an excellent job with not intervening, it must have been hard! E is so so patient, it is lovely to watch.ReplyDelete
Amazing! E use very well the knobbed cylinders for a 16 months old child! I like how she compares cylinders to find the good place!ReplyDelete
I did the same with my son when he was 16 months. He watches the 3 year old do it so of course he wanted to join in. He does it so carefully too, just like E. I think watching their siblings do it makes them know how to treat a material.ReplyDelete
Okay, all educational value aside, that is dang adorable! But also amazing that she really can do it :)ReplyDelete
She's doing so great!ReplyDelete
