VA SOL K.16: The student will identify, describe, and extend repeating patterns.

Curriculum Framework

K.15: The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to:

- Sort objects into appropriate groups (categories) based on one attribute.
- Classify sets of objects into groups (categories) of one attribute.
- Label attributes of a set of objects that has been sorted.
- Name multiple ways to sort a set of objects.

K.16:

- Observe and identify the basic repeating pattern (core) found in repeating patterns of common objects, sounds, and movements that occur in practical situations.
- Identify the core in a repeating pattern.
- Extend a repeating pattern by adding at least two repetitions to the pattern.
- Create a repeating pattern.
- Compare similarities and differences between patterns.
