PATTERNS – Early math for toddler and pre-k kids









Patterns are a great activity for toddlers and pre-k kids.  This is a beginning math concept and be use introduced along with sorting and matching.  B (2 1/2 years old) sort of gets the concept but we are still working on mastery.  This week he enjoyed a few patterns with wooden shapes.  Then he spent quite awhile playing with the shapes and eventually driving his cars around the shapes.  Are you teaching patterns?  How do you demonstrate this concept?

Here B is helping me finish the patterns made with wooden shapes and counting bears.  Of course, you could use just about ANYTHING – pom poms, stickers, foam pieces, etc.

Here are some other great resources for pattern ideas.  As you will see, you can get very creative and advanced with these pattern games!
