These shapes have been out for a while now so I decided it was time for them to be packed away. But I always like to make sure we have all of the pieces. So I asked Ruth if she could sort all the pieces into the different shapes and colours and make sure there are 4 of each. She then decided to even pack the colours on top of each other in the container. Her counting is really good although she sometimes says the colour wrong. If she gets the colour wrong I will just have to ask "what colour is it" and then she will think a bit and get it right. It was also nice to spend time talking about the different shapes.
