patterns

We are beginning a unit on patterns in our Full Day Kindergarten class.

To introduce patterns, I am planning a whole group instruction time on the carpet. I will have the children stand up, and make sure there is enough room that each child can move a little, and bend over, safely. To learn about “AB” patterns, we will use our bodies. I will start with simple actions (clap, tap shoulders) and have the children do the pattern after me. I will then ask the students (one at a time) to show me an “AB” pattern using their bodies.

This is a fun way of introducing a new curriculum area, and it also gets the children up moving!
