As soon as she saw the prepared material she sat down to work on it. First, we named what she can see in the picture. She could name them all. She didn't understand why there was a tree among the picture cards:
E.: - Why is the tree here?
M.: - Because they make the oxygen for us.
E.: - Yes, and we need air.
She didn't ask about the flower, though.
When she found the water drop picture, she simply stated: - We need water too.
She moved from the easier ABAB pattern...
...to a little bit more difficult AABAAB and ABBABB patterns
The four sheets were long enough for her. She didn't want to make her own patterns on the empty grid. Maybe at another time. But you can do it :)
