PASS Phase 1 Materials

PASS Experience Yes - No with plush animals

Category: Phase 1

I took as a "model" the video posted on PASS Materials by Alexander. I have done almost the same thing with my daughter. I took five plush animals (bears expecially) not so different one from each other. I was the one thinking first of a toy, she was the first one trying to find out about the toy using questions. I put a rule on this game: no guessing. We also changed the toys that we were thinking about with others similar.

She asked me at the beginning question like "What's the color of the toys eyes?" that I could not reply with yes or no. So, I insisted that I only can respond with yes or no.

I realised thet she has done better this time and I was proud because she was using new "elements" on her questions. She tried to see what makes each toy different, what is the distinctive element. She was good at it. For example: a scarf, a star on the ear, if it stands on two feets, if it has the fingers delimitated etc.


PASS Experience A sorting game

Category: Phase 1

My daughter has a game named The Four Seasons. It is a game with four worksheets representing each season and 40 cards representing different elements / activities specific to each season. The one who succed in filling the worksheets first with ten of the suitable cards wins the game. (You can not see the cards, you pick them up when it's your turn. If you chose one that is not suitable you put it with the face down).

I thought of changing the rules of the game and try to do some sorting with my daughter. We used only the cards. I asked Teona to sort them using any criteria except the one related to season.

It was hard at the beginning because she had the intention to arrange them by season but she quickly changed them. It was naturally because she is used with the rules of the initial game. It was really extraordinary to watch her thinking, sorting in a way and then changing her mind.
