    watch me vs look at me

    [Three children are playing Head Stand.]

    Sandy: Can you stand on your head, Billy? Look! Like this.
    Tom: Let me try. That’s easy. I can do it.
    Tom: Billy can’t stand on his head.
    Billy: Of course, I can! Watch me! Now I’m upside-down.

    Is it wrong to use “Look at me” instead of “Watch me” in bold?

    Re: watch me vs look at me

    As an NES but not a teacher, as for me, I would personally say:

    "Watch me do it", but
    "Look! See! I've done it!".

    Hope this helps
