Greg


I swear I thought I updated this thing more recently. Gah. Anyways, I thought I would introduce you to a friend of mine who I hope will be friends with my young clients as well! This little guy is Gregarious, or Greg for short. I made him 2 years ago before I went to Ireland. My good friend Sophie was going to Greece, and I wasn't going to see her all summer. I made us both bears to take with us and photograph as we traveled. I had a lot of fun taking pictures of Greg in Ireland, and now I take him around with me whenever I go places and photograph him. When I started getting into speech-language pathology, I decided that I would bring Greg and his photos into the therapy room with me. I'm going to try him out this fall, if I get my supervisor's blessing. Children could describe Greg in his pictures, what he was doing and how he felt. They could sequence the pictures. They could tell their own Greg stories by looking at the pictures, and I could even make them bears to take on adventures themselves! This particular picture is of Greg in the preschool room in the student clinic. There are all kinds of super-neat toys in there. I hope I get a few preschoolers who won't get overloaded by that room so we can play. :)

What a great idea. You must knit very well. I would love to see some of the Ireland pics of the bear.
