Common Core State Standards Alignment: Counting & Cardinality, Measurement & Data

Learning Styles: Tactile, Visual

Skill Development:

Basic Concepts – Colors, counting, and learning about similarities and differences are all a part of pattern play. 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.

Math –As students bead a repeating sequence of colors and shapes, they are creating AB patterning (e.g. red, blue, red, blue). Through patterning, students are beginning to recognize order and predictability. Add to the fun by counting the beads as they are laced in place.

Fine Motor – Picking up the individual beads uses pincer grasp and strengthens the muscles in the hand needed to write and perform daily living skills, like getting dressed and brushing teeth. Using two hands to play by holding the lace steady with one hand and picking up and placing the beads on with the other helps develop the ability to use hands cooperatively.

    Comments about Beads & Pattern Cards Set:

    I obtained these beads for fine motor and visual motor skills the students that I work with. These cards are good across age levels and have a variety of different cards that the kids can choose from. The brightly colored beads are large enough for small hands to grasp while interesting enough for the older kids. There are also enough beads that I can make a design for the kids to follow or the other way around! I have laminated the cards since they are used on a regular basis.

    Overall, I would recommend the beads and patterns for all students.
