Series and sequences
Recommended age: 2 to 3 years:
Using the 5 chicks of our Lilac Hen we are going to create a sequence according to their color, for example:
Yellow chick - white chick - yellow chick - white chick - yellow chick
Another sequence that we can create is with the size of the chicks like this:
Little chick - big chick - little chick - big chick - little chick
We always show our son the characteristic of the chick that we are taking into account to put in the sequence: "Look, we are going to put a small chick, now help me choose a big chick."
We can accompany these sequences with the chick tokens or we can even do the activity using only the tokens.
Recommended age: 4 to 6 years
We invite our son to draw his own sequences combining different characteristics and inventing new chicks.
One way could be for each chick to have a different shape, color and size, creating a sequence for example like this:
White triangle chick - yellow triangle chick - brown triangle chick - white triangle chick - yellow triangle chick - brown triangle chick.
Each time we increase the characteristics in the sequences, as our son becomes more aware of them.
