Branching Out Theme of the Week: Polka Dots & Patterns

So many things around us are based on patterns and things that repeat.  We can learn how things grow, how buildings are built and how songs come together by looking at patterns.  We are also building math and reading skills by learning to recognize and repeat patterns.  We will make patterns in our block and art area as well as look for them in songs and stories.  Do you notice patterns in your neighborhoods?  How about in the sky?  When you find one, be sure to talk about what might come next!
