This and That and These and Those: Guess which hand?

The 3- and 4-year-olds had massive fun playing Guess which hand? with their parents. “This one! This one! This one!”

The parents had massive giggle fits while teaching their children what to say and how to play. “Both hands! Can you show me both hands?”

I had massive fun watching the interactions. Often the simplest familiar activities produce the most language.

When the children really know how to play, we’ll have them sit back a bit from their parents: “That one! That one! That one!”

Suggestions, please: what can we do to teach these and those?
