Wilma made these patterns with blocks and drew them in her math journal. She decided to include this piece of work in her portfolio because "I like yellow and red." This work shows Wilma's ability to create and extend simple patterns.
Last semester Wilma worked hard at developing the concept of one-to-one correspondence or counting only one number for every object counted. The work she has been doing during our number sessions and her free play show that Wilma has now mastered this concept with numbers up to 10. She has even been challenging herself by counting the teddies in our teddy jar which are often more than 10. Well done Wilma! You are a committed learner!
Here is a photo of Wilma counting rocks to match the numbers she sees:
