At Mariposa Elementary, Mrs. Bonilla’s VPK is working on learning about patterns. They have already learned about AB patterns and now they have moved to working on ABB patterns. Arianna Lopez, Charles Sloan, Hunter Schultz, Annahisha Charles, and Cristian Gomez were provided with visuals and hands on examples. Then they were given counting squares so that they could work on making an ABB pattern individually.
