Patterns and More
Stick and Stone
Things you can do at home:
- Let your child have unstructured time to play. At this point in the year, they are very tired and need play time to process all that has happened in the day.
- Ask your child about the bubble gum brain and the brick brain.
- Have your child use the pipe cleaner they brought home to show you how to identify the core (le coeur) of a pattern.
- Have crayons and art supplies on hand and encourage time to draw and colour. This helps to process their day and it supports writing. In the primary grade (through grade 3) we often start with a drawing to facilitate writing and generating ideas for writing.
- Count in French, especially higher than 30! There are links to videos that have the French counting words under the tab "Songs we are singing" at the top of the page.
