A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

...and I mean it!

call me an AVT mom, 'cause when I see this shot, my first thought is look at all those vocabulary words!!! We have not only colors but new words, new textures and more. What I always try to do when the kids are interested in something, is ask them lots of questions moving through all five senses. "Is it rough or smooth? Can you eat that? Is it sparkly or dull? Does it make a sound? What does it smell like?" So we could sit and discuss one shell for ten minutes! In doing this...Brook holds one shell up to hear ear and when I ask if she heard anything she said "yes, it sounds like The Last Mimzy" (apparently the little girl on that movie listens to a shell??)

Okay, back to reality today!! Which isn't so bad.

Hmmm, she got a good set of ears :) I have to find a shell now and do that! That is amazing though!
