So, we were in the plane to MN to visit my family and I got out a word-search for Teo to do. This book I have chooses a topic for the word search and this topic was “barbeque.” So, I made an RPM lesson out of the word search. The following are random answers to questions I posed during the lesson. RPM is all about expanding the persons mind, so we ask for a lot of synonyms, definitions, or ask “what 3 things come to your mind when you think of the word _____?
Mom: Teo, what does it mean to “marinade” something?
Teo: Soak the meat in juice. Change the texture of the meat.
Mom: Speaking of “house,” what 3 things come to mind when you think of “house”?
Teo: sleep, help mom, rain
Mom: Teo, what does “rare” mean?
Teo: Cooked just enough to make it safe.
Then Teo said out of the blue…”It is fun having a lesson like this.”
Mom: What comes to mind when you think of “dinner”?
Teo: camping, family, mom
Mom: How about “fry”?
Teo: frying pans, hot, stove
