Patterns can be found wherever a sequence repeats itself and are made from everything from sounds to movements, images, objects, numbers and shapes!
Patterns help children develop reasoning skills by understanding what comes next.
A helpful way to visualize patterns is with letters to represent the repeating sequence.
For example, Nume’s “clap, stop, clap, stop” follows an AB pattern.
As well, the same pattern is seen with Litty jumping acorss the squares of a checkerboard.
A collection of rocks, pinecones and acorns could be lined up in an ABC pattern.
Patterns can be made with up to any number of things, making the possibilities endless!
