Book Title: Patterns and Sequence Stick Kids Workbook, Grade PreK (Stick Kids Workbooks)
Publisher: Creative Teaching Press
Author: Teresa Domnauer
Knowledge of patterns enables us to make predictions and solve problems. Noticing patterns in nature and in home routines and observing the sequence of daily events strengthens mathematical thinking and supports logical thinking and understanding of the world. Reading comprehension and the ability to solve mathematical equations are dependent on a childs skill in patterning and sequencing. This book includes activities that build skills in these areas.
Upon your childs completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart and stickers to track progress and celebrate your childs success.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids® Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, stickers for acknowledging achievements, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!
