Again I am not sure we will be patterning with Common Core, but just in case someone can use these ideas. We made Twizzler patterns using small cut pieces of Twizzler candy and bracelet elastic string. I made fun foam patterns and they used fun foam pieces to copy them. They used the die cuts to make patterns. I cut them and put them in plastic bags. They rotated the bags around the table until everyone had made patterns with each bag of shapes. My favorite activity was making the pattern links, which I used as a display. The Pattern Parade is my mom's patterning display.
