welcome back to my channel guys and thank you for watching don't forget to subscribe hit that like button and share the content if you find it useful or if you think it may help someone let's continue talking about literature and using books within your home school to teach so many different things so here's a book for our enrichment character-building okay it's called thanks for the feedback this series has so many books that Julia Cooke has written that just helps with character building and I have a few ok so what I would do I would use this for my toddler would realize we had read it out loud I would talk about the pictures so I would tell her what his feedback mean what are these pictures you know on top of his head why is the picture on top of his head what are the colors that you see you know and then as I'm reading I would you know take my finger and slide it across the words as I read she's only two and a half at the make the making up this video so obviously she cannot read but she is putting sounds together and learning her sonogram so I would say mmm thanks see H a and K s thanks th mm thanks you know stuff like that I mean my son bears with me as I read the book because because they're both there when I read these hips of character-building books so I would read the book and for my daughter I would say let's talk about the picture what's going on in the picture I asked my son look at the picture what's going on what are you seeing and then let's say I read this paragraph when my teachers words went into my head I started to think about what she said I had no idea what to say back to her then all of my words just turned into a blur what is this poetry why is it poetry rhyming words what are their rhyming what are the rhyming words head and said her and blur very good teachers what type of word is teachers a contraction right is it a contraction no it's not a contraction so I would do that to just you know be playful and to also trick him to make sure he's not you know agreeing with me just to agree that he's really paying attention so I would say teachers contraction then he would say oh yes a contraction I'll say why is a contraction he'll think about it hold on that's not a contraction Haley what talk about that and they're there any words in here that he may not understand but with this level of books you would understand all the words so here I would probably pull out some spelling words for him if there you know where any words that were a little bit difficult maybe like the word reached that's not difficult but I would probably still put that on a list maybe notice I would put the word blur in terms of vocabulary what does the word blur mean you know so I would use the one book to talk about character because if you read the story it's excellent in terms of some you're not you know when someone gives you feedback when someone gives you a positive compliment or a compliment or ain't up a feedback or a positive or critic like well I'm sorry criticism constructive criticism you know how do we deal with that how do we process the information if we don't like what we hear and how do we process the information when we like what we hear you say thank you if you agree with it if you don't agree with it sometimes you still have to say well thank you for that I don't see it that way but let me you know do some internal work to determine if you know this is how I really am because of others see me this way there must be something that I must be missing in terms of my behavior so let me go ahead and you know do some self evaluation on that so we talked about also if you are utilizing your literature don't forget to take each sentence and classify it you can classify each sentence or you can diagram each sentence personally in our whole education I prefer to classify some pieces but either one will work and what that basically means is you are basically dissecting that sentence and identifying all the parts of speech okay so identify your antecedents identify your preposition your prepositional phrases your adjectives or adverbs and so forth and so on also you can identify what type of sentence is that is that a declarative declarative sentence imperative sentence interrogative exclamatory how do you know what punctuation mark does that represent is our sentence even complete does it represent the five parts of a sentence you know is there a subject verb agreement is there a capital letter and things of that nature so you can dive into that with all your literature as well so I wanted to mention that to you guys so for my daughter when I read it would be Strickling colors phonetic sounds letter sounds pictures animated voices for my son the lesson the character lesson we're trying to learn if there are any vocabulary or spelling words I can pull out and things of that nature so hopefully this was helpful to you guys if you find any questions for me please leave them in the comment box below I'll get back to you as soon as possible as always be blessed keep house going on make it a great day I
