  • Kindergarten Math Patterns Lindsay Andrews
  • Fair Use Statement
    • This presentation was created using the Fair Use guidelines.
  • Children will learn…
    • Patterning
    • Classify and label objects by common attributes.
    • Sort and classify objects by a single attribute.
    • Identify, copy, describe, create and extend AB, ABB, and ABC patterns
  • Classifying and Labeling
    • Having kindergarten students play classification
    • games not only increases their logical thinking skills
    • but also reinforces math vocabulary. Many children
    • gain experience sorting and classifying as they play
    • with rocks, leaves, buttons or other household items.
    • Children will find common attributes in materials
    • around the classroom and will sort and classify them
    • according to those common attributes and then they
    • will label them.
    • Once children have learned to sort by common attributes, they will move on to classifying and sorting by a single attribute.
  • Patterns
    • AB patterns
    • This is a pattern that is appropriate for children just learning the concept of patterns.
  • Patterns
    • ABB patterns
    • This pattern is
    • More difficult than
    • the AB pattern.
    • Provide children with the materials and have them create their own ABB pattern.
  • Patterns
    • ABC patterns
    • These patterns are more difficult for children to accomplish.
    • This pattern is appropriate for children who need a challenge.
  • Finish the Pattern
    • Have the children finish the AB, ABB, and ABC patterns.
  • Matching Activity
    • Activity: have children match the correct pattern type to the correct pattern.

  • Activities for teachers to use
    • copy patterns that others have made
    • extend patterns that others have started
    • tell what is missing if part of a pattern is hidden
    • compare and talk about patterns that arise from their daily experiences
    • recognize patterns in the environment - e.g. fence posts: short, tall, short, tall...
    • use patterns to describe the world around them and to solve problems
    • identify a pattern
