We had a great morning practicing tummy time, exploring GAK, and singing/ reading about ducks!
5 Little ducks went out one day…
Over the hills and far away…
Mommy duck called with a quack, quack, quack….
Only 4 little ducks came waddling back.
Our ASL/ Spoken English story “See How They Grow: Duck” depicted a real duck from the egg to white feathers. We discussed the importance of providing real experiences and images as well as drawn or cartoon images to children to create a more in depth understanding of the world around them. This story also demonstrated ways to incorporate a variety of words in describing the actions of creatures- shake, dabble, waddle, swim, paddle, etc.- to expand on language further.
