The next area that catches 'M's attention is the large building blocks. She roles/shuffles over and begins pulling them off the stand and watching as some role away, and others stay where they fell.
Characteristics of Effective Learning
At just 10 months 'M's knowledge of cause and effect is being tested and explored in any way possible. She is exploring objects around her to see what they do or what she can do with them. She is attempting to copy my actions to create the same effect but in some areas she doesn't quite have the motor control or strength yet.
- Continue to offer the pop-up toy as a regular resource for 'M' to explore and practice with
- Build on fine motor control and strength using smaller blocks to make towers
- Introduce some sensory bottles (perhaps with sound) to explore further how her actions have an effect on objects around her
