Ashton's Diary - Jan 2021 Part 1

Ashton’s diary

January 2021


[21/1/21, 5:59:17 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 21/01/21 Video 1 and 2 - Time 4 Learning (language arts)

Goal - number of letters in a word.


Outcome - Our language lesson started with a letter counting quiz. Ashton had to answer five questions in relation to this topic. The first type of question asked us to choose the word that has three letters, I worked through this question with Ashton by helping him count the letters in each word to find the correct answer. We repeated this for all other similar questions throughout the quiz. The second type of question showed us a word and we needed to select the correct amount of letters, again I helped Ashton to find the correct answer (we counted the letters of each word) and we repeated this for all other similar questions. Our next lesson was an introduction to tomorrow's topic.







[21/1/21, 6:00:58 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 21/01/21 Video 3 and 4 - Time 4 Learning (math)

Goal - shapes everywhere (recognising and matching flat shapes).


Outcome - Our first math lesson provided Ashton with the relevant information about recognising flat shapes and how they can be seen everywhere. After this informative lesson we moved onto an interactive lesson. First up Ashton had to match several shapes (the shapes may have been different colours/sizes or in different positions) and he was able to do this. After this task Ashton was presented with three multiple choice questions and I assisted him where needed to answer them. Overall Ashton is showing a good knowledge in relation to flat shapes.





[20/1/21, 6:10:41 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 20/01/21 Videos 1, 2, 3 and 4 - Time 4 Learning (language arts)

Goal - number of words in a sentence/number of letters in a word.


Outcome - Our first task today was a quiz based on yesterday's lesson that Ashton did with Sami. Ashton needed to count the number of words within a sentence/find the sentence with a certain amount of words (for example, the sentence that has 3 words). At times Ashton needed encouragement and assistance to complete the task. Next we did a lesson on counting the number of letters within a word. I assisted Ashton with counting the letters of each word to gain his participation. For the most part Ashton was able to select the correct amount of letters within each word.











[20/1/21, 6:16:06 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 20/01/21 Videos 5, 6 and 7 - Time 4 Learning (math)

Goal - describing flat shapes.


Outcome - Today we did a lesson that focused on describing flat shapes in preparation for a quiz that followed. In this lesson Ashton learnt the different properties of several shapes and how these properties are used to describe each shape. After this lesson we moved onto the quiz. Ashton was able to answer the first question, however he needed assistance for the rest of the quiz. As we came to each question I helped Ashton and explained the correct answer to him.









[20/1/21, 6:18:52 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 20/01/21 Video 8 - Time 4 Learning (science)

Goal - observing matter syllables.


Outcome - In this lesson Ashton was presented with several jumbled words that had been chopped up into syllables, these words related to the observing matter topic. As each word came up on the screen an explanation was provided. This lesson was a little difficult for Ashton so I provided him with assistance and got him to count out the number of syllables in each word.

[16/1/21, 5:52:09 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 16/01/21 Video 1, 2 and 3 - Time 4 Learning (science)

Goal - nature walk/collage (observing matter)


Outcome - Today we all went on a nature walk to collect natural items to make a collage that observes the qualitative properties of matter (shape, colour and texture). On our walk we collected various items such as sticks, leaves, flower buds and grass. During our collection experience we talked about the things we were finding and how they felt (for example, rough or smooth). Ashton was able to describe the moss that he was feeling on the rock as rough. When we finished our walk it was time to do our nature collages. We all sat at the table together and I chose a few items to discuss. During this discussion we talked about the colour, shape and texture of the natural items we had found. At one point I gave Ashton a stick and asked him what it felt like and he described it as bendy. After our discussion we made our nature collages. All of the children enjoyed this activity.

[15/1/21, 7:17:33 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 15/01/21 "wh" questions (not filmed)

At breakfast I asked Ashton what he was eating and he replied, "pretzels". I also asked what he was watching on his iPad and he said, "mine craft lego". He started watching another Lego video, I asked him what he liked and he replied, "I like lego mixels".


[15/1/21, 7:17:59 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 15/01/21 Video 1 - Star Program 2 (receptive language - lesson 4 - action pictures)

Goal - to receptively identify action pictures when presented with five options and asked, give me... (for example, give me clapping).


Outcome - Ashton was able to hand me each action card as I requested it. He did a great job at receptively identifying each action and we will be moving onto the next goal.





[15/1/21, 7:18:47 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 15/01/21 Videos 2 and 3 - Time 4 Learning (language arts)

Goal - identify lower and uppercase letters.

Outcome - Ashton needed some assistance and encouragement to select the correct lowercase letter, I helped him where required. Next we moved onto uppercase letters and Ashton was able to recognise most of these letters on his own. Occasionally Ashton went to be cheeky and click the incorrect letter (even though he knew the answer), so I made sure he ended up choosing the correct letter.







[15/1/21, 7:21:44 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 15/01/21 Videos 4 and 5 - Time 4 Learning (math)

Goal - count how many, 1-5.


Outcome - Today Ashton did two math quizzes relating to counting numbers 1-5. He needed a little bit of assistance for the first quiz, but overall he did a great job. When completing the final quiz Ashton needed encouragement to complete the task. He was able to recognise the correct answer for each question.








[14/1/21, 5:53:15 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 14/01/21 Video 1 - Star Program 2 (expressive language - lesson 3 - accelerated labels)

Goal - to name pictures when given the cue "what is this..."


Outcome - Ashton was able to verbally label all of the animal pictures that I presented to him. During this task Ashton recalled (on his own accord) where he has seen some of these animals before (for example when visiting the animal park).







[14/1/21, 6:05:43 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 14/01/21 Videos 2 and 3 - Time 4 Learning (language arts)

Goal - understanding concepts of print


Outcome - Today Ashton was learning about how we read a book from left to right and which way a book is opened. After listening to the explanation Ashton needed to answer some questions, he was able to answer some of them and I helped him when he needed it. Next we completed a quiz and this was a little tricky for Ashton so I helped him to complete it.







[14/1/21, 6:07:49 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 14/01/21 Videos 4 and 5 - Time 4 Learning (math)

Goal - count the same number


Outcome - Ashton did a great job with maths today. At times he needed encouragement to focus and listen, but he showed he has an understanding of the concepts we covered today. Ashton recognised different arrangements of the same number and he successfully completed the counting eggs in the nest activity. Next, Ashton completed a counting 1 - 5 activity and he did an excellent job with this, getting four out of four questions correct.






[14/1/21, 6:12:02 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 14/01/21 Video 6 - Time 4 Learning (science)

Goal - observing matter (qualitative and quantitative)


Outcome - Ashton watched the observing matter - qualitative and quantitative cheer song video that explored the meaning of those two concepts. After the video Ashton needed to place a series of words in either the qualitative or quantitative column. This was tricky for Ashton so I helped him with the task. I tried asking Ashton where each word belonged and if he couldn't get it I would show him which column it should be in.






Began a new level of time 4 learning.

Speech therapy

13/1/21

Speech therapy

( videos in photos) discussed Ashton asking questions- social thinking - I see what you are thinking.


Sammy Nanny: 13/01/21


Initiated speech - Ashton went to sit at the table and bumped his leg on the table so he began to cry, I comforted Ashton to help him feel better. 10 minutes later Ashton turned to me and said to me “hey sami, I feel better now.”


Questions - sami - “what did you do today?”

- Ashton - “ I went swimming”

- sami - “who did you swim with?”

- Ashton - “2 boys”

- sami - “ who was watching you?”

- Ashton - “mummy”

All correct recall of his day.


Sammy Nanny: 13/01/21


Video 1,2 - shark book


Goal - interaction and answering questions


Outcome - Ashton came to me And asked to read the shark book with me, together we talked about all the different names of sharks. Ashton even used his imagination and made up his own name for a shark. We had lots of fun discovering new sharks together.







Sammy Nanny: 13/01/21


Video 3,4,5 - time 4 learning (language arts)


Goal - identifying parts of a book


Outcome - Ashton greeted the talking book by saying hello and waving, the book then asked him his name, “my name is Ashton, what is your name?” As the activity went on Ashton didn’t show much interest as he may have found it difficult to answer the questions, I assisted Ashton by answering the questions and explaining the answers.









[13/1/21, 7:47:56 pm] Sammy Nanny: 13/01/21


Video 6,7,8 - time 4 learning (math)


Goal - number recognition 1-5


Outcome - Ashton was able to identify and match the numeral to the corresponding picture. We then moved into matching number amounts to words, I helped Ashton match the numbers to the words as he is still learning how to recognise and read words. Ashton was able to identify which pictures had 5 crabs and which one didn’t, at times he needed some prompting to finish the activity.









Sammy Nanny: 12/01/21


Video 1 - SP2 PC Lesson 8 identifying numbers


Goal - to be able to identify each letter shown


Outcome - Ashton was able to identify a for siren head, he also recognised the letter o. Together we talked about the letter g for Godzilla as well as other letters of the alphabet.





[12/1/21, 5:59:25 pm] Sammy Nanny: Video 2,3- time 4 learning (language arts)


Goal - identifying letters as well as parts of a book


Outcome - Ashton needed some guidance throughout this task as it’s the first time doing these activities. Today we watched a video on parts of a book, then it was quiz time! Ashton didn’t show much interest in answering the questions so I answered them as a prompt to encourage Ashton to participate in the quiz.







[12/1/21, 6:04:21 pm] Sammy Nanny: Video 4,5- time 4 learning (math)


Goal - identifying how many animals there are.


Outcome - Ashton was able to identify how many animals there were for most of the questions, he needed some help clicking on the numbers and then pressing next. He began to lose interest for the quiz so I helped by answering the questions.







Chantelle Burns Nanny : 08/01/21 Video 1 - Waseca Reading Program (Gold Australian Biome Folder - Satin Bowerbird)

Goal - to interpret (jointly with me) the pre sequenced picture cards in the Bowerbird

folder. To answer 'wh' questions. (listening, interpreting and answering questions)


Outcome - Ashton wasn't overly focused for this activity and I had to bring him back to the task a few times. Firstly we looked at the map to locate Australia as that is where the bowerbird lives, next I went through each card and discussed the relevant points with Ashton. At times he was paying attention and other instances I had to repeat my points to ensure he was listening. After we went through all of the cards we placed down the corresponding sentence cards and I began questioning with Ashton. Ashton was able to focus and answer some of my questions, however he required prompts occasionally. We ended this task as Mummy came in to say hello.







Chantelle Burns Nanny : 08/01/21 Video 2 - Sequencing cards

Goal - to correctly sequence four cards depicting a birthday event. To answer 'wh' questions. (sequencing)


Outcome - I presented Ashton with four cards out of sequence that depicted a scene from a birthday and I wanted him to place them in the correct order. To make this task relevant for Ashton I asked him if he had ever had a birthday party and straight away he was able to recall his Mothra cake (we then discussed his Mothra birthday cake). Ashton was able to sequence two of the cards, however he was a little trickster and decided to turn all of the cards over to match the pictures on the back. I ended up turning the cards over and once they were in sequence on the correct side Ashton was able to tell me what was going on in each card and he answered my "wh" questions as well. I decided to do some role play with Ashton and I got him to sing Happy Birthday. After that he pretended to blow out the candles, I cut the cake/served it and Ashton ate it. This was another cute experience.






Chantelle Burns Nanny : 08/01/21 Video 3 - Star Program 2 (expressive language - lesson 4 - action pictures)

Goal - to verbally say the action (verb) when presented with a flashcard and asked, "what is this?"


Outcome - Ashton was able to tell me instantly most of the actions occurring on each flash card. He had a little trouble when it came to recognising washing hands as it looked like the boy was making bubbles in the water rather than washing his hands at a normal sink. Overall Ashton did a great job and understood the task.




Chantelle Burns Nanny : 08/01/21 Ashton enjoyed his first time using ring fit on the ninetendo switch today.








[7/1/21, 5:23:48 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 07/01/21 Video 1 - Star Program 2 (expressive language - lesson 3 - accelerated labels)

Goal - to name pictures when given the cue "what is this..."


Outcome - Ashton was able to label all of the food pictures as I presented them. During this task Ashton decided to get descriptive with each food calling it after characters that he likes. I decided to follow this lead and turn it into an interaction. I asked Ashton to pretend to eat the food, wipe his face and clean the crumbs on the table (to create a role play), all of which he did. Ashton did an excellent job with this role play experience.







[7/1/21, 5:31:13 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 07/01/21 Video 2 - Star Program 2 (receptive language lesson 3 - identification of people)

Goal - receptively identify people when given the cue "touch..."


Outcome - Ashton was able to identify each person as I requested by touching them with his elbow. I included a photo of Ashton and Anastasia when they were younger and he was also able to identify himself and Anastasia when I asked. During this task Ashton recognised his bedroom at Temple in one of the photographs and started saying he wanted to go home, I told him that he was at home. Ashton responded by telling me that a new Temple is being built for him. I thought this was great because it shows he has an understanding that the old beach house is gone, but there will be a new home at the beach for him soon.





[7/1/21, 5:31:51 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 07/01/21 Video 3 - Tracing

Goal - to independently trace curved lines using the correct pen grip. (fine motor)


Outcome - Ashton did a great job tracing the curved lines on the first page (I had to adjust his grip for each line). The second page had more of a wiggly line and although Ashton didn't draw directly onto the line he did the correct motion (if he slowed down a little l feel he would be able to keep on the line). For the next two pages that we did Ashton required more assistance and wanted to trace most of the lines together.





[7/1/21, 5:32:51 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 07/01/21 Video 4 - Osmo math wizard

Goal - to add two numbers and find the total. (addition)


Outcome - Ashton did a great job when it came to making our first growing potion. He was able to place down the correct amount of ingredients and I gave him some assistance when it came to adding them together for the total. We made several more potions and I provided Ashton with help and encouragement where it was needed. During this activity Ashton was a little cheeky, sometimes he likes to get the total incorrect as he enjoys how the potion machine malfunctions.

[6/1/21, 5:24:10 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 06/01/21 Video 1 - Tracing

Goal - to independently trace lines using the correct pen grip.


Outcome - With encouragement Ashton was able to independently trace the straight lines on the practice mat (I modelled the first one). At times I had to correct his pen grip and place the pen into his right hand.


When tracing the curved lines Ashton initially wanted to draw a straight line, so I modelled what he needed to do. Ashton tried to follow the curves especially when I reminded him. Again I corrected his pen grip when needed.




[6/1/21, 5:27:24 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 06/01/21 Video 2 - Match and spell

Goal - to recognise letters (match them to the word card) and their sounds. (letter recognition)


Outcome - Ashton was able to select the correct letters and match them onto the word card. Today we did two words, rat and cat. I kept the words similar so we were working on the same letters and sounds. Ashton did a great job at sounding out each letter.





[6/1/21, 5:34:29 pm] Chantelle Burns Nanny : 06/01/21 Video 3 - Yellow stepper

Goal - to independently use the yellow stepper to improve strength and balance. (gross motor)


Outcome - Ashton hasn't used the yellow stepper in awhile and requested I hold his hand. He was able to push down using his leg strength to make it move. I'm confident if we continue practicing he will be using it on his own in no time.

Goal - to identify and talk about different feelings


Outcome - the first emotion we looked at was amused (funny) Ashton did a great job at pretending to laugh. When we were looking at the calm card Ashton told me we had a problem, I asked him “come and tell me what the problem is!” He replied to me “I will think about this, this is boring!” I loved that Ashton was able to convey his feelings to me.

Video 3 - SP2 PC Lesson 8 expressive identification of letters


Goal - to be able to identify each letter shown


Outcome - Ashton was showing interest in Godzilla and siren head so I took out the letter g and s to show Ashton that they are the letters that are at the beginning of those words. Once we talked about the letters, I asked Ashton to tell me the name of the letters that we just learnt.
