His eyes widened and he had a smile on his face when he showed us the boomerang he made from the popsicle sticks. He said he was sorry to his brother for breaking the thing he was working on. We also observed his cognition. When he was pounding in some of the golf tees into the pumpkin he said, “they are buttons,” and showed us how they worked by pushing them with his finger and making noises. Joaquin was asked what color each of the golf tees were. He knew all three colors; orange, green, and white. He said the shape of the golf tees that had been pounded in were a circle. He knew three shapes; circle, triangle, and square. When asked what color the popsicle sticks were, he knew the colors. The colors were the primary colors.
