Patterns, Kindergarten

This was a super fun and easy kindergarten lesson. I loved this lesson because it was a simple but fun way to teach the concept of patterns to my little kinders. To begin this lesson, I had the students divide their paper into six sections. Then I had the students use oil pastels to draw a pattern in each section. I emphasized that it needed to be a pattern, and not just random designs. Lastly, students used a light watercolor wash over the whole thing. (I had them paint each section a different color).

These turned out great. I think they came up with quite interesting patterns too!
