Lately my son sees letters, numbers, designs, and patterns in everything from the clouds in the sky to the pine cones on the ground. I love seeing the world through his eyes. I wanted to offer him an open ended invitation to explore designs, symmetry, spacial patterns, etc that I once used in my classroom. I used google images to search for random designs, and then printed those designs onto TRANSPARENCY SHEETS. I set up the invitation and it was a bigger hit than I anticipated. He was very engaged in this for almost an hour….and even asked me to print more designs (which I let him choose).
