POCET Mathematics Example

POCET provides four basic activities for each of the 68 Developmental Guidelines which provide a scope and sequence of skills for Language, Literacy and Mathematics, plus five other domains of learning.

Here is an example for the Mathematics domain:
Block Patterns
The block center is a good place to work on repeating patterns. Help the chldren create repeating AB patterns using blocks. Example: red, blue, red, blue, etc. Begin by using two colors of blocks or two sizes of blocks. Create several repetitions with the blocks and then ask the children what would come next in the pattern. Connecting blocks is useful to hold the pattern together. Children can then pick up the blocks and compare the patterns.
