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 Guess again...

Category: Phase 0

When my daughter asked me to play a game with her ("the show" game) it was my chance to ask her why should I play this game with her. But again, she looked at me really strange. :-) She is often used with responds like "ok", "in a few minutes", "ask dad because I have to cook" and so on...

I asked her again. Give me some reasons why I should play with you this game. The word "reason" really gave her trouble. She asked her dad "What does she mean by reason?" (I guess she wanted to ask "What's wrong with mommy?!" I encouraged her to try.
