Purposeful and Authentic Patterning in Kindergarten

Last week (February 18th) I had the honour of presenting with my colleague and friend Santina Fantetti on behalf of the Toronto Educators Association for Mathematics (TEAMS), a branch of the Ontario Association for Mathematics Education (OAME). Our presentation discussed the topic of patterning in Kindergarten. We hoped that the presentation; as well as the accompanying provocations; supported our attendees in gaining a deeper knowledge about the complexity and importance of patterning in the early years.

Many thanks to all who attended! It was a wonderful evening of sharing our learning. For further questions, comments, or sharing of your own experience in teaching patterning, please do not hesitate to contact us.


  1. Congratulations to you both! What a great opportunity for us parents to see the method behind the madness too! (not that Room 109 is EVER madness!) Amazing work. Those AQ students don't know how fortunate they will be to be part of this learning! (Sarah)
