Patterns Page

 
Mrs. Katie's Homepage Patterns are anytime an upcoming thing can be predicted because it follows a predictable set of guidelines.  There are different kinds of patterns.

Building Patterns:  Patterns that increase (The numbers in order make a building pattern.) are also called building patterns.  They start out small and get bigger and bigger!

Repeating Patterns:  You see the same set over and over again.

.

Decreasing Patterns:  Patterns in which the amount get smaller and smaller.  (Counting down is a decreasing pattern.)  In the picture below from outside to inside.

Skip Patterns:  Numbers can make skip patterns.  These patterns are very important for counting money and other things.

Here are some activities and sites that you can use when helping your child learn about patterns.
