But what exactly is a pattern?

Here's what we think:

A pattern is.....

".....like there's blue, red, blue, red,"  said Chloe.

".....numbers and it could be 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and then again 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 like that," explained Dasha.

".....you write something and after you did again and again square, triangle, square, triangle," said Tatiana.

".....when we do the same thing like red, blue, yellow, red, blue, yellow," explained Aabis.

".....something who keeps going on and on."  Virginia.

".....by colours; pink, blue, pink, blue," said Shouq.

".....we make a square and then a triangle and then a square and that's what they call a pattern," explained Harrison.

"You can also make patterns with numbers.  You say it for a long time; it can keep going on for ever," said Tommy.

"You can use these letters, a b c; a b c; a b c;" said Meghna.

Patterns are.....

".....colours or numbers that keep on going," Sharukh told us.

".....circle, triangle and square; circle, triangle and square; circle, triangle and square; circle, triangle and square and so on....." said Thomas

"Some if you use only two shapes like square, triangle, it's called a b," explained Shahrbano.

"Patterns are things that keep continuing," Owen concluded.

What do you think?
