Look at the green and grey squares that were made yesterday. What is the same and difference about these two Numberblocks?
They both have four corners and four sides. They are both as tall as they are wide. Show this by holding a Four in each hand. Lay one in front of the other and then rotate the one in front a quarter turn and show how it still fits exactly over. Repeat for the Nine.

(The two yellow ducks are in a row and the two green ducks are in a row.)

9 is three groups of 3.
