Patterns and Sequencing:

Patterns and sequencing are such a crucial part of life at every stage. As a parent, I am always looking for ways to incorporate patterns and sequencing into our every day lives. One of our favorites involves the dishwasher and eating utensils. I will place a fork, knife, and spoon in their respected "places" and then hand Abby a hand full of mixed utensils with directions to sort and match them to their partners. Not only is she learning patterns and sequencing, but also the skill of listening and following directions.

What are some of the methods you use to teach basic lessons to your little ones or not so little ones?

Below are several links you may be interested in for all ages. Please be sure to share your favorite sites as well!

Fun Brain: This site is a true treasure chest for grades K-8. You will just have to visit the site to see what I mean. It is amazing!

LINKS Learning: Just like the letters in our alphabet teach us how to speak, read, and write; so math is a language of its own which teaches us a language of patterns and symbols. I personally have learned a lot from this site!

AAA Math: Basic Math Skills, Unlimited Interactive Practice, Explanations and Examples, Challenge Games - Be sure to scroll all the way down this page and explore the site in general. At first glance I was not impressed but once I explored some I really like this site!

What a good idea! This is something I can easily do with Ava and not have to spend money buying a game that will teach her the same thing. And we do dishes pretty regularly...
