This unit is aligned with the Ontario FDK curriculum. This packet includes 9 lessons broken down into the lesson introduction, core learning activity and lesson consolidation. Students are introduced to what patterning is in this unit, and there are many patterning cards that can be used as centres for creating patterns using a template/given pattern. There are 9 activity worksheets included in this packet, along with answer keys. Most activities can be completed by colouring in shapes, drawing simple shapes/objects and cutting and pasting pattern parts.
The expectations addressed in this packet are:
- Identify, create, reproduce, and extend repeating patterns through investigation;
- Identify and describe informally the repeating nature of patterns in everyday contexts, using oral expressions and gestures.
If you have any questions about this packet, please feel free to let me know.
