Task B8/B17 - Match or Continue a Pattern

On a piece of paper for each child, attach several different colored self-stick dots in a row to start a pattern (red, blue, red, blue; orange, yellow, green, orange, yellow green, etc.) Then give the children more dots and let them continue the pattern across their papers. When they have finished, start a new pattern on each paper, if desired.

Color sets of tongue depressors with red, yellow and blue felt tip markers. Let the children use the tongue depressors for counting and sorting games. Or draw vertical red, yellow and blue lines on index cards. Have the children use the cards as guides to create color patterns with the tongue depressors. Variation: Use colored toothpicks instead of tongue depressors depending on the age of the child.
