Understanding patterning is vital for good

A pattern is any sequence that repeats at least twice.

The ability to recognize, identify and create pattern supports learning in mathematics and contributes greatly in broadening the children’s social development.

Through the understanding of pattern, children can make predictions about what comes next. They children will be able to make accurate predictions about things or events that occur regularly.

Example, they can predict the next event after break time.

The first pattern they will learn at this age is the AB Pattern. This means that two different objects line up in alternating pattern.  Example:

CIRCLE (A)    SQUARE (B)    CIRCLE (A)    SQUARE (B)    CIRCLE (A)    SQUARE (B)     CIRCLE (A) SQUARE (B)

You can use any object to teach patterning. You can use two fruits like orange and banana. You place the object one after the other until you complete the sequence you want.

You can use numbers———– example

2          9          2          9          2          9          2          9          2          9

The kids should understand that after every 2 comes a 9. You can give test exercise like this

Presentation

The topic is presented step by step

Step 1:

The class teacher revises the previous topics

Step 2.

He introduces the new topic

Step 3:

The class teacher allows the pupils to give their own examples and he corrects them when the needs arise

Evaluation :

Draw the following pattern

2          9          2          9          2          9          2          9          2          9

Conclusion :

The class teacher wraps up or conclude the lesson by giving out short note to summarize the topic that he or she has just taught.

The class teacher also goes round to make sure that the notes are well copied or well written by the pupils.

He or she does the necessary corrections when and where  the needs arise.
