Isaac: Mummy, Faith took the last mandarin.
Amy (mother of Sam, Isaac and Faith): OK. Why don’t we add it to the shopping list?
Isaac: I’ll help her spell it.
Amy: Here you go. OK. Sit up here.
Amy: Well, I try to organise a menu a week in advance, so that I know what to buy.
Amy: [to children] Oh we’re also having chicken tonight and I need to buy some. So can you write that down too? How do you spell chicken, Faith?
Amy: I try to plan ahead so that I know I can make something the kids will like.
Isaac: … -I-C-K-E-N.
Gehan (father of Sam, Isaac and Faith): There’s nice skills in terms of literacy skills and numeracy skills.
Amy: Faith is just learning to read, she’s just in prep. She finds the word ‘the’ and ‘and’ in everything, so she points it out.
Amy: Great job guys, thank you. Can you pop it back on the fridge, Isaac, please? Thanks Isaac.
Gehan: I think it’s really important that they learn that they can make choices and be in charge of their world, but also that they get guidance from us as to what are the appropriate range of choices.
Amy: Isaac, why don't you grab an apple instead of a mandarin for today? Thank you.
