Patterns Week 3:
Focus for the week:
- Providing opportunities for children to group items into two sets (separating the blue bears and the red bears or small squares and large squares). With these sets, using measuring and data skills to observe and compare sets of objects (the yellow stack is taller than the blue stack).
Activity: As we move through this week, we’re starting to sort items into two sets. Mealtimes offer several opportunities to do this! You and your child can sort foods into two sets and then compare them: do you have more sweet foods or savory foods? More green food or more beige food? More crunchy or soft food?
Video: In today’s video, Teacher Maddie talks about dishwashing and sorts dishes into two groups: bowls and plates.
