Patterning With A Passion
So we all use patterns using our classroom calendars and we might use manipulatives along with this but why not record these in strip books so the children can take them home and "read" them to their families? You can do ABAB forever and just use different images to keep it interesting. This book would be for the kids that understand this concept and need more of a challenge. I love the cut and paste aspect too. I will be selling strip style books in my TpT store if you love this and want them. My partner cannot get enough of these (seriously).We start out patterning the kids and using hand motions which our students really enjoy. I think this year I will have a new pattern every day that we can build in a pocket chart. Remember you can use dot markers at the very beginning and have them work with 2 colors (KISS).I have it as a free download in a much earlier post. What do you use for patterning?
