This is part of the equipment at the local park:
This morning, Elijah and I went to play at the park. Instead of his usual first port of call, the slide, he went straight to this naughts and crosses board. Imagine my surprise when he pointed to the right-hand column and said, "There's a red one up there. There's a blue one in the middle. There's a green one down there." He then proceeded to do the same thing with the other two columns. You can see him pointing to each colour as he names it in the photo below. The fact he knew his colours didn't surprise me. The fact he knew up and down didn't surprise me. The fact that he could connect these concepts as well as understand and apply the concept of "middle" was what blew me away.
It turns out that the concept of "middle" was taught to him yesterday by Daddy while I was in Sydney, filming. Connecting all these elements was yesterday's lesson. Apparently he picked it up very quickly, which doesn't surprise me at all. It generally only takes one or two times and he remembers and understands it.
This post qualifies as a Ruby Tuesday, which was started by Mary, but I found it at Quilly's place first. Post an original photo that contains something red on Tuesdays!
