Today was our first “Student Led Conference” at our son’s school. We were given a worksheet that outlined all the stations that each kindergarten student needs to go through with their parents/guardians. Each station featured all the skills & lessons the class have learned so far. For me the most interesting station was the “Patterns” station. Our son had to recreate the patterns from a guide sheet using coloured blocks. We were also encouraged to make our own patterns. I realized the simplicity yet important skill of recognizing basic patterns. Here I thought they just ‘played’ in kindergarten.
