Can you make a pattern?
We are reviewing patterns and introducing growing patterns. We started with ABABAB patterns, moved to AABAABAAB patterns, then tried the challenge of the AABABCABCD pattern. In patterns, each child made a pattern and then their partner finished it.
We made a beautiful turkey of repeating ABCDABCD patterns outside the classroom this morning!
Mrs. Powers showed us a video she made for Breck several years ago of patterns from the architecture, streets, textiles and pottery of Italian cities. It was a wonderful reminder that patterns are all around us--and in every culture. A letter is going home today asking you and your child to collect something from your home that demonstrates a repeating pattern! Their item can be from any country--be sure your child can tell us where it is from. Please bring in your item next week for a pattern sharing morning!
