Patterning With Kinesthetic Movement

Another way to work on learning patterning is by repetition using movement.

Put your kids in a circle, either sitting or standing. Give them a pattern to repeat. Ex: AB

You start off by saying A, then hand the ball to the child next to you, who says B. They hand it over to the next child, who repeats A, and so on until you've gone all the way around the circle.

You can start over by making the ball go in the opposite direction, which challenges the child's mind to figure out what their letter is going to be.

Later on, you can increase the complexity of this lesson by giving another pattern, such as AAB and so forth once the class is ready to learn it.
