making patterns and sorting for fun

The children are familiar with patterns and relish identifying, constructing and extending them. During free choice time, I often observe a student using building or manipulative material to create their own patterns. 

A student selected only red and yellow planks to create a repeating pattern.  

Another student selected rocks and jewels, to make her pattern. 

 We also spend lots of time sorting items by different attributes. A tray of pompoms invites students to sort by color, using our chopsticks (that provide fine motor practice) and partitioned boxes. 

I include this last picture to share the joy, fun and cooperation that your children engage in daily at preschool!
