    Abstract

    This paper reports a study monitoring the development of 53 preschool children’s patterning skills in two matched preschools, in one of which a 6-month intervention promoting patterning was implemented The development of an interview-based assessment comprising identification, repetition, visual recall, extension, transformation, and representation of patterns is described, and a preliminary analysis of the interview data is presented. Children participating in the intervention program showed much greater improvement over the course of the 6 months than the non-intervention children.
