In Literacy, Monroe was able to say that the colour of the pig from the story was pink, using the pink symbol before sticking it down on the paper. This is an example of Monroe engaging in a colour semantic activity. Next, she was able to distinguish between the wolf and the pig and cut and stuck the correct images underneath the animal from the story. She attempted to use scissors after initially ripping the paper with her hands, working on her motor skills and coordination. Lastly, when asked what the image of the wolf climbing on top of the roof was doing, she cut out the symbol for climbing, suggesting that she is beginning to understand verbs.
