Our curriculum encourages narration after each reading but that is immediate and does not always show the relationship that Froggy is forming with the story. It is often many days later that the Grand Conversations occur.
We are on vacation right now but that allows us more time for these Grand Conversations. These are my favorite part of homeschooling. The look they give me into Froggy's thought process is fascinating. They frequently happen at bedtime when she is supposed to be sleeping. When the conversation is so engaging, it is hard to put a stop to it even if it means sleep comes way later than it should.
