nate: oh, letters! let me look at those letters!
me: ok. which letters do you see on this page?
me: good. that spells book. what about this next page?
nate: oh! (points to a question mark on the page) that means question!
me: uhh, yes. it does. how do you know that?
nate thoroughly enjoys memorizing and recalling symbols. he can recognize all of his letters, capital and lower case. he can also recognize his numbers 1-10. and the best part is-he thinks it's fun!
apparently, he has starting learning punctuation as well, although i'm not sure from where he has learned it.
