Emily : "Grandma, we had something delicious for supper. Chicken pox pie". (Chicken pot pie).
When discussing word association for piano lessons.
Me: "When you hear the word Melodic, think of your cousin Melody."
Emily: "Why not Abby?"
Me: "Because MELODy and MELODic sound the same"
Emily: "I would rather think of Abby"
Me: "So when I say 'Melodic' you'll think of....."
alrighty then. moving onto the word 'harmonic'
Me: "Do you know what the word harmony means?"
Emily: "No, but I know what extended grace means."
I guess word association with 5 year olds doesn't work the best.
Jacob on our play phone:
Jacob: "Hello? Who is this?"
**waits in silence as the imaginary person answers him
Jacob: "Oh! It's daddy! Hi dad! Where are you?"
**waits for the pretend answer
Jacob: "Oh, you're in toronto. What are you doing?"
**waits for the pretend response
Apparently pretend conversations are hard to make out on a pretend telephone.
