3V1780.01 Peggy Paris 10 (12/6/82) Three segments, first reading “Hop on Pop”; second on left and right; third on using phrases with CITY micro-world. Lack of translation from text to speech & vice versa is deep: no 1-1 correspondence at verbal level; lack of letter-sound correspondence; left-right distinction is firm (now with the sign correct) …

3V1774.04 Reading to Me (11/30/82) Peggy read, i.e. interpreted the stories of, Richard Scary’s Funniest Story Book Ever. Two incidents stand out: first shows lack of cross-page & top-bottom order of story interpretation; second, the role of inferable cause in inducing such order. In the story about “Absent Minded Mr. Rabbit,” Peg did not notice …

3V1421.01 Reading Test (in P203/K27) (12/13/81) In P203/K27 (which began with Peggy’s first captured dance), I gave Peggy a reading test based on two groups of words — the first from her reading of books; the second from her computer experiences. From the first group of words she recognized only “NO.” (Gretchen has been reading …

3V1277.1

3V1277.01 First nearly complete Alphabet song (7/22/81) Peggy is much interested in the alphabet. Recently she sat on the couch reading Richard Scary’s book, saying what the letter picture correspondences implied, “A is for Apple,” etc. Getting stuck once or twice she asked me to tell her what was intended by the picture (eg.

3V1270.01 Alphabets: the litany and “A is for Apple…” (7/15/81) Today Peggy was singing, chanting material about the alphabet. She has “ABCD” pretty well, but later on always goes “L-O-M-O-P” The similarity of M and N appears to confuse her. She also repeated several times, “A is for Apple, B is for Ball…”

3V1252.01 Pure Conditionals (6/27/81) Last observation was not accurate or complete.
