Annie, Nice field note!
Have you tried to suggest Filogonio to play a different game? If so, what and how did you tell him?
How did Filogonio communicate/interact with Mercedes (e.g., was he excited)?
You wrote "I think Filogonio and I were experiencing collaborative learning because we were taking turns and competing against one another." If your interaction with Filogonio is collaborative, how did you facilitate/guide his learning? and how did Filogonio contibute to your own learning?
You wrote "As well I wonder if kids are usually more motivated to stick with something when they appear to be doing well, or better than other kids. If that's true, then that could have a very negative impact on kids who speak english as a second. They might get very discouraged after always seeing other kids do better than them." Could you please clarify/extend how children who speak English as a second language would be affected Pablo
