Math and patterning

This week’s lessons will focus on math, specifically patterning. Being able to recognize and use patterns is an important problem solving tool. Developing strong patterning skills can be beneficial to your child’s mathematical understanding. This week’s activities allow your child to experience patterning through the eyes, with the hands and even with the whole body! Start with simple patterns. An A-B-A-B pattern means there are only 2 variables (apple-banana-apple-banana…). If this is easy for your child you can add another variable (A-B-C=apple, banana, orange, apple, banana, orange…).
