More tu studies

Posted by Picasa

We love science, and Elizabeth loves playmates, so we did another study today. This one with with the Children's Language Lab. Two puppets played a game with Elizabeth, where she was given two cards and had to choose the card the puppet named. One puppet said odd names for the cards, but Elizabeth chose one of the cards each time anyway. The other puppet used the right names, and Elizabeth played along. Then, she was asked to choose one of the puppets to build with blocks with her, and then choose one to answer a question for her (the name of an unusual object.) Elizabeth bucked what I think would be the assumed choice and picked the puppet that did not name the object cards correctly earlier. It could be that the second puppet had to keep reminding her not to roll the cards up, though, and she thought he was no fun.

More Science

Posted by PicasaElizabeth participated in a play / language study at the tu Children's Research Lab today. She had a great time and will go again next week for part two. She was in one room with the research assistant while I was behind the glass in another room (hence the reflective images.)

Party Day

Posted by PicasaWe got to enjoy two parties Saturday -- a neighbor's "I stopped sucking my thumb" party and daddy's 40th birthday party. At the first, Elizabeth got painted up like Spider Man (or a red spider web as she describes it.) Then, she got to sing and have fun at daddy's karaoke party. She sang Happy Birthday.
