Patterns are everywhere. If you look around your home and neighborhood, you will see patterns (a series of designs) in lots of things like buildings, clothing, pictures… Young kids work on being able to pattern in kindergarten and first grade. They are taught to recognize and continue patterns in shapes, colors, letters, and so forth. Patterns also show up in other things like math. If your child is able to understand patterns, they will be able to see and understand how things work together. Understanding patterns is a basic skill that will help your child comprehend more difficult math problems later.
