News: We continue to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the protests that are ongoing. A former Oakster family shared an event to the community board from PCM (Philly Children’s Movement) to the community board. We encourage you to connect with this group and ways that people are joining in this movement as families.
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: Today we think about how shapes can also make patterns! We notice this sometimes when we are playing with blocks. We might set a circle next to a square, and then another circle then square. If we kept going (circle block circle block) we would have a Circle Block pattern!
