  • Understanding
  • Conversations
 

Two year old Orson is outside in the garden with dad. They chat together, thinking about what to do.

Notice

  • How does Orson make himself understood?  (Look out for non-verbal, facial expressions and body language as well as spoken language)
  • What does Orson understand?
  • How is Orson learning? Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
  • How does Dad support Orson?

Reflect

What are your thoughts about:

  • How Orson was trying to communicate?
  • Orson’s level of development?
  • The role of the adult in this interaction – how did he support Orson?
  • The value of this type of conversation for Orson?

Respond

What would you do to:

  • Support Orson’s ideas and encourage his thinking about what he wants to do?
  • Encourage other Orson to engage in conversations with other adults and children outside of the immediate family?
  • Model conversational behaviours for young children and show how useful they are?

What next:

  • Do you need to encourage more of this kind of conversation for the children in your setting? Do you allow enough relaxed time for conversations like this?
