Your children are deeply immersed in our work with patterns. They were highly engaged this week, in each of our hands-on activities. They used the light board, SMART Board, apps on the iPad, and art materials to discover, explore and create various types of patterns. Your children also learned to analyze and recognize patterns in the world around us. From noticing our clothing to listening to music and literature, and by observing patterns in art and nature, your children are more familiar with the language necessary for mathematical problem-solving and arithmetic patterning.
