Middle

She spotted the "burds" again and tried to fly, smiling and giggling because she loved making Rose and me laugh. She slid half way down the hill on her bum once more, got up and walked down the rest of the hill, stumbling a few times but regaining her balance. Holding a pencil and drawing We all went back inside to get some paper and Lily's crayons. We went back outside to draw and all sat on the floor in the sun. Lily drew mostly scribbles, with different colours. Her favourite colours were purple, yellow and blue. She used her right hand to draw and used primitive tripod grasp, quite near the top to hold the fat crayons. She had only been drawing for about three minutes before a plane, flying overhead, caught her attention and made her lose interest in the crayons. She recognised the plane and more birds and made the connection that both planes and birds fly and they both have wings, by saying "plane and burds do this" and holding out her arms and pretending to fly. She put the crayons back into the pack using her thumb and first three fingers to pick up the crayons. She got agitated when one of the crayons got stuck and tipped the whole pack upside down, letting all the crayons fall out. ...read more.

Conclusion

I asked Lily, "What are they doing, Lily?" and she replied, "DVD". When she saw that they were eating bananas and apples and drinking juice, she started shouting "nanas!", "baps!" (apples) and "jooce!". She spotted the cat in the corner of the page, and saw the DVD's scattered across the floor and said "mess", whilst nodding her head. The last page was of a toddler asleep in her bed. Lily whispered "shhh, babe-babe asleeps" and pointed at the pictures of teddy bears and "bankits" (blankets). Recognising family in photographs Rose got the box of photos and showed Lily an old holiday photo of the family before she was born, and Lily couldn't recognise anyone because they all looked different to her. However in all the recent photos she could recognise "Bear" (Holly), "Brad-brad" (Bradley), "Bot" (Poppy), "Marsh" (Marshall), "Daddy", "Mummy", "Elliot" and "Rose". She could recognise herself also and said either "Lily" or "Babe-babe". She also recognised people when they were quite far away in the picture. When it was time for me to leave Lily said "bye" and gave me a hug. She showed me to the door with Rose and helped to open it for me. She walked down the path to the first gate and said "bye" lots more, and then waved as I walked away. EVALUATION EVALUATION ?? ?? ?? ?? Laura Young Centre No. 24245 Candidate No. 5417 ...read more.
