The Nurturer begins with two objects: This is a man. This is a woman. This is a person. These are people. Where is the man? Where is the woman? As names of items become familiar, new ones are added, one at a time, with lots of repetition. The pronouns are mixed right in with the nouns: Where is the boy? Where am I? Where are you? Where is the woman? Where are they?

(In many languages, "Where is" is a good question for initially learning names of objects, as it will involve the most basic form of the word, whereas "Point to the egg" may involve a changed form.)

Don’t separate the people and the pronouns. Do them as one group of items.
