Your little learners will love reviewing patterns in an interactive but structured format. After making these patterns you can encourage them to create their own patterns. 

AB, AAB, ABB, ABC, AABBAA patterns are covered.

Kindergarten Pattern Making
Students take a pattern card, identify how to make and continue it and use the single apple cards to continue the pattern.

To assist students struggling to identify the pattern, ask them to verbalize the pattern - e.g. gree,. re. yellow, green, red, yellow... Ask them to identify the part that repeats. 

To further assist, students make like to place apple cards directly under the source card to scaffold an identification of the pattern.
