Ella and I have made the square of Pythagoras. Then I directed her to build the tower with the pink cubes. |

Without any prompting on my part she took the smallest square and put it on the smallest cube of her tower and said, "Look Mummy! They go together!"

Ella then proceeded to relate the two materials in the same way as she had done with the red square and the smallest pink cube. |

Then she did it horizontally. |

Our "fancy" storage container for the square of Pythagoras - a plain wood tray from the dollar store. |

Hi,

ReplyDeleteyour blogs are great!

i'm a mom of 2 boys (2.5 and 1) and just got started with Montessori. Hainstock and Gettman are my main sources of information along with websites like yours. Your extension exercises I haven't seen anywhere before. Can you let me know where you get your information?

Thanks,

SA
