The girls opted for puzzles instead of stories tonight. They are totally interchangeable, right? E was in one corner with her States puzzle and R and I worked on the ABC train puzzle. Papa had to help keep E from bombarding R with ABC puzzle 'help'. R is starting to understand how things fit together.
Here's the gist of our conversation throughout the puzzle putting together:
Me - Okay R find the E for elephant
R - Dis one?
Me - No that's the S for skunk.
R - Bur-dee?
Me - Here's the K for kangaroo
E - Bur-dee?
Me - No it is a kangaroo
Me - Now you need the M for moose
R - Dis one! Bur-dee?
Me - No that's not a birdie that's a rabbit
Clearly we have some animal identification to work on : )
