Awareness of patterns is a critical building block for mathematical reasoning! We see patterns in everyday life - like repeating stripes on a shirt ( red, blue, green) or on a tile on a floor and also in art. Gond Art uses repeated patterns of dots and stripes in paintings. Complete the border for your own Gond Art with repeated patterns of dots, squiggles, lines and more. Repeat colors in a pattern or even patterns in a pattern! Talk about and observe patterns in everyday life, building a skill that is important for future math abilities.
One, Two, Tree
Written by Anushka Ravishankar, Illustrated by Sirish Rao and Durga Bai
The book is a tale of the numerous animals that are clambering up a tree! The book is essentially a number book, but gives its readers much, much more. It is a picture book and a nursery rhyme book too. The illustrations, which are from the Gond tribal tradition of central India are very attractive.The fonts are big – exactly what you would want for your young reader. The language is simple. The lovely rhyme used to count the animals – makes counting so much more fun! The way the tree keeps expanding to provide home to the increasing number of animals is wonderful. We also loved the subtle message which comes through of living harmoniously. The book ends on a sweet note of hope that yet more can be accommodated on this lovely tree!Subscribe to Toka Junior Gift a Box
