Grade 1 Month 1 The Wonder of Patterns
The Wonder of Patterns is a funny name, but quite literally means that you and your child will be telling stories of and with Patterns and forms. What are patterns and forms? When you think about it, patterns exist in everything in nature and forms make up all the letters and numbers that we use today. There is the straight line and the curved line and all the ways that these two friends interact. By spending four weeks exploring patterns and forms through imaginative pictures, you have a place to focus on routines and rhythms for home learning, your expectations for school time in your home such as where, when, and how. And by focusing deeply on the patterns and forms, you get to also focus on the ‘form’ of your child’s posture, pencil grip, quality of work, and habits. You will also get to ease into the start of the year since there is no studying to do, you’re welcome!
