Beads and pattern card set features colorful wooden spheres, cubes and cylinders to provide plenty of patterning practice. As students bead a repeating sequence of colors and shapes, they will learn to recognize order and predictability. Plus, picking up the individual beads strengthens the muscles in the hand needed to write and perform daily living skills. Or, work together with students to group the beads in different piles by color or shape. Then begin to create patterns to help students identify the different attributes and recognize what comes next. Card set is designed for children ages 3 and above.
