Have you ever thought about the huge variety of patterns that are part of our everyday lives? If not, today could be the day!
When children become aware of patterns, they are fascinated by them and will begin to see them in everything …
Understanding what makes a pattern helps children to learn things like rhythm and time, how to make predictions and many other skills they will use in daily life. It even underlies learning about number and how to write a story.
Enjoy playing and talking together with your child today as you find patterns everywhere!
And remember, nature outside is full of patterns. Snowy or frosty days are great for pattern spotting but you need to be quick or they will disappear!
