Each week we do some work with pattern blocks. I either set up some hard patterns for her to work on, she builds me some hard patterns to work on or I challenge Holly to a picture of some sort. I came across this wonderful graph to use when creating pattern block pictures: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B8bTZllX7s9pZjZmMDA1MzgtZjg2OC00OTI3LTk4MmUtODMxYWY1NjMzNmFh&hl=en
This was a great addition to Holly's pattern block play -- so, we'll be breaking out this graph occasionally. On this day she had to build a small garden picture, pretty easy stuff.
