# Making patterns 5

Calculating Cat has made an AB pattern with the sticks:

purple, yellow, purple, yellow, purple, yellow……….

See if you can use her rule to make a pattern with sounds or movements. You could try:

• Using your hands to clap, click, clap, click, clap, click……….
• Making sounds such as whistle, shout, whistle, shout………..
• Using movements such as hop, jump, hop, jump, hop, jump……or
• stand, sit, stand, sit, stand, sit ……….or
• wave, stamp, wave, stamp, wave, stamp………….or
• run, stop, run, stop……..

What about this pattern? Look for the rule then use it to make a pattern with sounds or movements.

Play with patterns:

• One person makes a repeating pattern using objects. Another person works out the rule and uses it to make a pattern with sounds or movements.
• One person makes a repeating pattern with sounds or movements. Another person copies it.
• Look for repeating patterns in your environment. Say the rule and use it to make a pattern using sounds or movements.
