Freya brought a great little bingo game for Jacob to play with today. She started by labeling different items, which Jacob then matched to pictures. She encouraged two-word phrases by modeling, which Jacob imitated without pauses several times. He did a great job matching!
Freya did the egg hunt again today! I guess she knows a good thing when she’s got it. She hid 10 eggs with finger puppets inside. Jacob climbed stairs, squatted, side-stepped, etc. Once he opened the egg Freya asked him to identify the animal and then walked like the animal to the next hidden egg. Not only was she working her speech but she was working him physically as well.
I was able to capture a little of this exercise on video for you to get a better idea of what it is that she does.
