The pack contains so many activities, that we have differentiated for the range of abilities. It also includes a colour and a black lined version of each patterning strip.
Now this will save ink, but we didn’t make them for just that reason. We know that kids can get things right for the wrong reasons, especially when it comes to patterning.
They are great at memorizing, parroting and continuing an oral pattern, “red, blue. red, blue, red, blue…” but kids don’t necessarily understand that there is a repeating pattern of red, blue.
So to stop this from happening we have made the black line versions of the strips so you know that the kiddos are using their visual discrimination skills to identify, copy and continue AB patterns, and not just seeing the pretty colours!
