Pattern Mats #Unifix Cubes #teacherspayteachers #backtoschool #backtoschool 2015 Recognizing and making patterns is a fundamental skill that should be mastered by students to develop good literacy and numeracy skills. This unit is composed of 5 sets of patterns (with three strips each) suitable for Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st Grade students who are beginning or needing practice in recognizing and making patterns.

Exploring a wide range of organic forms within a visually cohesive fruit and vegetables theme, Sucha's artwork contains a wide range of textures, shapes and patterns. Shadows and highlights communicate vast depth, with tone built up in layers. Compositions emphasise not only the fruit and vegetables, but the deep shadows and spaces between them.
Jennifer McCurdy, "Emotion fills me when I see perfect forms in naturel. The ordered symmetry and asymmetry of nature's forms reveal the growth of life, the movement of life. I strive to make my work reflect the balance of life around me. It is important that the patterns I see around me are integrated into my forms. Finished pieces hold elusive glimpses of the balance between the convex and the concave, and light absorbed and reflected."
Think Sheets and Brag Sheets for Positive Discipline
Think Sheet and Brag Sheet Counseling Tools or Classroom Forms. Reflection sheets that can be used in classrooms or counseling sessions to help students think through their positive and negative actions. They can also be sent home or kept for your own records. I have found that sequential set-up helps students think through their actions and recreate positive patterns or repair negative ones.
