use your words

Chris went over the list of things the kids are expected to know for kindergarten. They say that a bigger vocabulary is the best indicator for success. So. I have to say new words to her.

She is a learning sponge.

used the bath toys to explain the 5 different kinds of animals.
Read that this is an important time to teach vocabulary. Every category was represented, thank you dinosaur, duck, frog, fish (shark), and her own self.
She repeated after me: reptile, fish, bird, amphibian and mammal.
She is however resistant to the idea that she is an animal. I reassured her that she is a person.
Volcano is not an animal. Water is not an animal. It’s fund to discuss these things.
