One group worked with Fruit Loops to create and represent each patterns they displayed. Mrs. Alice, one of our wonderful parent volunteers, led this group one day.
Another group worked with our vegetable manipulatives to create and extend more complex patterns.
Caitlyn, Vincent, and Zachary created some great vegetable patterns.
A favorite group this past week was the beaded bracelet patterns. I worked with the children to create a few different patterns of beads that they slid onto a pipe cleaner. We tied it up into a bracelet when they were finished.
Like all math concepts, patterns are something we'll continue to practice and notice in the world around us.
