A Bad Case of the Stripes If you want to grab all of the student's attention, all you have to do is open a book and start reading. A Bad Case of the Stripes, by David Shannon, is a great place to look for patterns, as the children discovered when our intern teacher, Ms Weseen, read it to them.
You can find patterns everywhere. The ability to see patterns is an important reading skill as well. Try looking for patterns around your house with your child today. See how many you can find and tell your child to me know!
