I stumbled upon another find , the blog on scholastic.com
The think then jot bookmarks is a wonderful idea . I tried this with Ramam on two stories we have read. Right now of course he needs a lot of prompting. There are some days I am excited about an idea and wait for Rama to be back from school . I want to try out the ideas and see how well they work for him.Yesterday was one such day. Luckily he got a project book as a return gift in school for a birthday party and we immediately put it to good use.
I tried to do an activity loosely based on this idea, with a hotel visit of his. Asking him what picture did he have in mind when I said hotel . He came up with the answer masala dosa. I asked him did he rethink his order when he saw other customers eating different stuff. He said yes. Then has he had a wow moment in a hotel? Probably when he had his first sizzler or a falooda, or an interesting presentation of food. He was listening so intently. It is at a very basic level, but again this organiser give me a path to lead a conversation with him, till he actually begins to actively take part in the conversation.
