|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.|
|After we had put away the pink tower and reorganized our square of Pythagoras I got out the bead square for her to relate them together. She told me that it was pretty easy since they all matched in colour.|
