Note: We are having some weebly woes, please use your imagination to insert photos.
The children continue to notice patterns through out the day and describe the sequencing they notice. Louise brought in a leaf today to share at meeting and Jack commented, “There’s like 100 veins. It’s like a pattern. It goes vein, brown, vein, brown.” Yesterday, the children took photographs of things around school that featured a pattern. At morning meeting we reviewed some of their photographs and shared some features we noticed repeating.
Some children have been particularly attracted to the patterns on clothing and expressed interest in fashion design. We printed children’s croqui forms and layered tracing paper and acetate over them so the children could design their own clothing. We noticed many of the children incorporated patterns into their designs while others focused on line work or color combinations. It has been exciting to see how the concept of patterning has carried across different subjects, what started in isolation carried across to beading, nature, insects, fashion and more!
