I'm wondering about one of my students. He's almost 4, but was fairly premature, so he's small. He's very bright. He uses what I think his peers might call baby talk -- "him can do it" - He does have enunciation issues, but nothing too drastic. What really causes me concern is this -- he can't talk much about what's real. He has an obsession with mice and bugs and, for the most part, will only talk about the mice or bug parade or what the mice and bugs are doing or some long drawn out story about mice or bugs. The other children are loosing interest in this little guy. He can't join in the games that they are playing very well. When we had a rocket ship and helmets in the room he could play rocket ship. But with less structure -- pure imaginative play with less props --he just can't join in. He even has a hard time answering questions about books, favorite part of the school day, etc without bringing in mice and bugs. But -- to give a complete picture - he recognizes all letters and can give a word for each letter, recognizes numbers 1 - 20, and remembers sight words. I'd like to help him connect with peers more fully. I'd like to see him be able to talk about his real life experiences a bit more. Any ideas?
