Common Core State Standards Alignment:
- Counting & Cardinality
- Measurement & Data
Learning Styles: Tactile, Visual
- Basic Concepts – Colours, counting, and learning about similarities and differences are all a part of pattern play. Work together with students to group the beads in different piles by colour or shape. Then begin to create patterns to help students identify the different attributes and recognise what comes next.
- Math –As students bead a repeating sequence of colours and shapes, they are creating AB patterning (e.g. red, blue, red, blue). Through patterning, students are beginning to recognize order and predictability. Add to the fun by counting the beads as they are laced in place.
