More Than Words

In her free time (wait a minute... she's five... it's all free time), Bethelle enjoys plugging away at her workbooks.  Since she has begun to read well, she can sit and do them almost independently, although she prefers that I sit by her.  I try to at least be working on something in the same room.

In this exercise, you read the poem on the left page, then answer the questions on the right.  I find that she generally answers quickly and correctly without looking back at the poem.

Look closely at her last answer:

A: Mom and dad      thaye tac car [of me]
