Pattern recognition is one the most important intelligence skills. It is the ability to recognise order. It also supports mathematical learning as well as more extensive cognitive and predictive skills.
Today class 1 worked on making patterns. We first learned what patterns are and practiced some skills by group. Then, we all had a turn to make our own patterns. With the use of 2 coloured rhinestones, we made some patterns on our paper.
This activity not just helped us learn but utilise our fine motor skills as well by carefully peeling and putting on paper our rhinestones.
