Take Five Missed Some Weeks

Finals overwhelmed me and so did the end of the year, so here I am back again ready to post my little heart out. My daughter Emma is in a speech therapy class and is working on different pronunciations of words every week. She has class one hour per week but is expected to work at home on her words for at least 15 minutes per night-this might not sound like a lot but she is 3 and her attention span is very VERY limited. What is interesting is that this week she was to reconstrauct a picture story of a chipmunk building a snowman. There are four pictures that she is to put in order to tell the story. Now I thought of course she is going to start with the picture of the one snowball and work her way up to the snowman completely built. WRONG!!! She started with the completed snowman and worked her way down. Afterwards, I asked her why she put the pictures in that particular order and she told me it was because the snowman was melting. What brillance!!! If I would have stopped her and made her do it the "correct way", I never would have seen her thought process. So cool, I just had to share!

She didn't mention global warming, did she?
