Critical thinking and problem-solving are essential life skills. Kids develop these skills slowly through continuous practice. You can help your kids acquire these skills through different learning techniques. Kids start perceiving patterns as early as preschool. Describing patterns and identifying missing elements requires kids to observe and recognize. Thus, they develop the ability to recognize patterns with time. Recognizing patterns is an important developmental skill. Practising patterns and sequences help children predict what comes next in a pattern immediately. We have made some fun and engaging pattern worksheets to practice patterns and number sequences. These pattern worksheets include number pattern activities, skip counting, colour and shape sequences.
