We practice recognizing and extending patterns throughout the school year. Understanding patterns is an important math skill for preschoolers. Last week, in small group, the students made a pattern bracelet using black and orange beads. It was a lot of fun!
Making bracelets is not the only time that you will see our preschoolers practicing making patterns. Many students use materials in the classroom to make patterns on their own. You might see patterns made with blocks or paper or Play-doh.
