Overview

Patterns A to Z is a unique resource that presents a large variety of silhouettes to encourage teachers and families to use open-ended activities with young children. The reproducible patterns may be copied and cut out to allow children to engage in open-ended art activities, as well as in language arts, manipulative, math, and circle time areas. Designed to be used with a range of units, the patterns fulfill children's' needs to be creative without the fear of "going outside the lines." The sections are alphabetized to help experienced and new teachers find patterns for a theme- based curriculum, to incorporate a letter of the week, or provide a spur of the moment classroom activity. Many pattern choices are given for each targeted alphabet letter and the variety of patterns allows teachers to complete a year's worth of activities. A theme-specific index makes activities to accompany units easy to find, and the sample Family Letter encourages active family participation from all families. Patterns A to Z provides a plethora of silhouettes to enhance the child's experience with open-ended activities. Children, teachers, and families will enjoy working with the many patterns as they explore different themes and share in unique learning experiences.
