Computer and Class Work done in Maths Learning Support Group
Senior Infants - Work done over several sessions since October. Using the computer to help teach pattern.
Work done in classroom :
Using concrete materials children made patterns with two colours. They then recorded what they had done on a worksheet. Next we made patterns with three colours, again using concrete materials and recorded on worksheet.
We then moved on to pattern using two criteria - colour and shape.
Firstly, we used shape alone (two shapes) - e.g.O  O  O 
Next we introduced colour - e.g. red circle, yellow square, red circle,
yellow square etc. - firstly using two colours and then three. All of
this was done using concrete materials first and then recording on worksheets.
- again concretely and then recording work done on worksheets.
"Millies Maths House" - "Bing and Boing"
The worksheet is based on "Learning Ladders - Preschool"
