We are going to begin by making simple repeating patterns. Adult to demonstrate simple AB action patterns such as:

Knees, clap, knees, clap..

Hands up, hands down, hands up, hands down..

Say the pattern out loud so children join in. Now extend to three ABC eg:

Tap knees, tap shoulders, tap head, tap knees, tap shoulders, tap head...

In your book, can you make a repeating pattern eg red circle, blue triangle, red circle, blue triangle...
