Recognizing and completing patterns is a fundamental part of learning early math skills for preschoolers.
From patterns, children learn to make connections, make predictions, and set the foundation they’ll need in the future to understand patterns that are found in numbers and equations.
Like any other skill, this will take time and practice to master. Fortunately, there are tons of fun ideas available online to give your child the practice they need and today, I’ve pulled together a list of some of our favorites!
