  12. 12. 我们是从玩 iPad 上愤怒的小鸟游戏开始的,我突然想到我的 iPhone 里有一个 Dr.Seuss 的读书应用。所以我把我的 iPhone 拿出来播放Dr. Seuss 的有声故事。我的小侄女竟然凭直觉玩起了这些应用,她知道如何靠触屏翻页,而且只有在遇到困难时才会问我几个问题。
  13. 13. We played three games on my iPad,beginning with Angry Birds. ThenI realized I had an app on myiPhone to read Dr. Seuss. So outcame the iPhone for a read withthe Dr Seuss- auto play, read toMe and read it myself. My nieceintuitively knew how to flip thepages with the swipe of her finger.She asked me a questiononly when she got stuck.
  14. 14. We went outside andlearned not to pull flowersoff the plants. A bit of handson learning andexperimentationand making mistakes.我们在户外玩了一会儿,她学会了不要摘花。当然了,我们花了点功夫去学习和体验新的知识,也难免在过程中犯错。

  18. 18. 后来我们拿着这两个兔子人的玩偶玩了好几个小时,假装让它们进行有趣的对话其实最开始时,这两个兔子人是都有两只耳朵的…小侄女甚至跑去市场买了点胡萝卜喂这两个玩偶,我们讨论了兔子人是应该像兔子那样跳,还是像人那样走路。之后两个人偶被我俩折腾累了,便倒在盘子里休息…
  19. 19. Continuing the imaginativecreativity theme, the “rabbitpeople” came alive forhours of conversational fun.At the beginning of the fun,both rabbits had two ears.She went to the market tobuy some carrots, wediscussed hopping vswalking, and then they gotvery tired and….
  20. 20. So she built a rabbithouse and a bed with our100 plus year old Turkishembroidery so they couldsleep.小侄女为兔子人偶搭了一个兔子屋和床,只不过她的建筑材料是我们具有100 多年历史的土耳其传统刺绣,她觉得这样兔子人才能安心睡觉。
  21. 21. 兔子人睡了之后,小侄女觉得我们应该安安静静地不打扰它们睡觉,所以我们决定到户外去。我俩用了一个多小时在地上画粉笔画,图片中就是我们的画作:仙女的魔尘,蝴蝶,飞机,花朵,和一只飞在海滩上的风筝。我们还给石头涂上了新颜色,并且在树上还有涂鸦。由于一个月前小侄女看到一只蝴蝶,因此她很好奇,问了好多关于蝴蝶的问题。
