Positive Climate for Learning
1-2 Learning Community
In the 1-2 Learning Community, we have been recognising and creating patterns in maths. In some ways, all mathematics is about recognising and using patterns. Students will learn a lot about numbers if they observe patterns. They have been getting lots of experience to identify and describe what they see with different materials.
It's fantastic to hear and observe our students creating patterns for their peers and repeating the pattern forwards and backwards. Next, we will be looking at counting patterns and emphasising the patterns that the numbers belong to. This is a great step to lead into skip counting....50, 53, 56...
Try making a pattern at home and seeing how your child continues the pattern they see. It can even be a set of dance moves!
