Patterns Week 4:
Focus for the week: Singing pattern songs and drawing children’s attention to the repeated refrain. Build patterns out of materials while children observe/help. Talk aloud about what you are doing using the word pattern.
Activity: Creating a pattern with body movements is a visually and physically engaging way to build your child’s understanding of this concept. You can do a movement dance (ex: “Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes!”) or think of times during the day when you make a movement pattern (washing hands, setting the table, etc).
