Hearing Journey Posters, A New Book and Listening Tests
Posted Jun 02 2009 4:20pm
Faye, our Hearing Resource Teacher, has brought a couple of great posters from AB's Hearing Journey website including the Sleepy Time Poster and the "I Heard That" Farm Poster that Lily has loved to explore and talk about.
She also brought a book from Eric Carle called Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me. It involved a father climbing up a ladder, on top of a mountain, to get the Moon for his daughter -- something Lily's Dad would definitely do. Lily soaked the book up as we read it, but didn't react too much. Then later that same day, as her Dad was holding her, she tried to reach and grab the moon herself. She's already an independent woman and definitely understood and could apply what she had read.
Lily's languauge continues to grow everyday. She repeats everything and many of her words and sounds are getting clearer. Today our SLP Staci was doing a listening test where she would ask Lily to point to the box with the Baby, Ball and Star or Book, Blocks and Heart, etc. After the exercise was completed, our SLP said Lily had done fabulously and that she usually waits until kids are three to do these exercises, but that Lily was definitely ready for them. Too fun!
