We've been learning a lot about patterns -- patterns in math and patterns in our behaviour.
This is a current school-wide focus -- one of our "Critical Pathways" this year.
These are some of the questions that we are asking:
What is a pattern?
How can we change a pattern? Why would we want to change a pattern?
How can a pattern affect our lives? (our daily habits; weather patterns; the seasons)
(answers to follow)
We have been reading books such as
Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?
Jake Baked a Cake
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
These are some patterns that we came up with (beads on pipecleaners)
