Context

Learning Story

A enjoys reading and listening to books. One day, she asked for the story, Where is Tippy Toes?  After she listened to the story, she went off to play. 

Approximately ten minutes later, A was reading Where is Tippy Toes? to her friend. When finished, she asked the teacher for some white ribbon. She then started to work independently at the art table. After 30 minutes, the teacher walked over and asked her what she was making. 

A said: “I am making my own book. The other book has too many words for the babies. My book has less words.”
