The article describes teaching and learning experiences from an intervention study on patterning with 4 and 6-year olds and explains the importance of experiences in early schooling to developing an understanding of patterning, an essential skill in early mathematics learning. There are several ways to explore repeating patterns, such as the linear patterns, cyclic patterns and hopscotch patterns. Most intervention children were able to extend growing patterns compared to non-intervention children.
