This discussion could be very simple not to elaborate and could be between 200 to 250 words.
are all around us. I encourage you to learn a little more about
patterns and list 5 patterns you discovered that exist naturally within
our lives/environment. You are responsible
for posting your response to the question no later than Friday night
midnight. Additionally you must respond to two other classmates before
Sunday midnight.You must first post before being able to respond to others.
Patterning recognition and creation
Understanding patterns is an underlying theme in preschool and
kindergarten math lessons. A pattern is defined as any sequence that
repeats at least twice. As a practical example, consider counting from
one to one hundred by ones. When counting, there is a recurring pattern
in which all digits rotate from 0 to 9 before restarting back at 0.
The first pattern that is introduced in the preschool classroom is
called an AB pattern. This means that two different objects line up in
an alternating pattern, such as: orange (A), banana (B), orange (A),
banana (B), and so on.
As comfort with patterns grows, the patterns will become more complex, moving to an ABC pattern or an AAB pattern.
The ability to recognize, identify and create patterns not only
supports learning in math but it also contributes to broader social
development. Through an understanding of patterns, children are able to
make predictions about what comes next. Just as a child can predict that
a red bead will come next after seeing a string with a red bead, blue
bead, green bead, red bead, blue bead, green bead pattern, a child will
be able to make accurate predictions about other things or events that
occur with regularity. For example, predicting what comes next after
eating lunch (cleaning up) or after taking a bath (putting on clean
clothes) will help a child maneuver more confidently in his environment.
JUST FOR FUN. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND WATCH THIS LITTLE GUY
DEMONSTRATE HIS UNDERSTANDING OF PATTERNS. FIRST HE SHOWS HOW PATTERNS
CAN BE BOTH UP AND DOWN. THEN THE TEACHER SHOWS HIM HOW THEY CAN INVOLVE
COLORS. DID YOU NOTICE ON THE WEBSITE HOW THEY LIST TWO BIG IDEAS? I
ALSO APPRECIATE HOW THEY MENTION THAT THE VIDEOS ARE TAKEN FROM
ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEWS WITH INDIVIDUAL CHILDREN. ACCORDING TO THEIR
SITE, “THESE INTERVIEWS ARE DESIGNED TO ELICIT EVIDENCE OF CHILDREN’S
MATHEMATICAL THINKING.” THEY ARE NOT TEACHING EPISODES OR FORMAL
ASSESSMENTS. Repeating Patterns with Child 32 – Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative. (2013, March 3). Retrieved October 23, 2015.
