The Learning Resources Beads and Patterns Card Set teaches students patterning, order and predictability. Through patterning, students begin to recognize order and predictability. Add to the fun by counting the beads as they are laced in place. Picking up the individual beads uses pincer grasp and strengthens the muscles in the hand needed to write and perform daily living activities like getting dressed and brushing teeth improves fine motor skills. Using two hands to play by holding the lace steady with one hand and picking up and placing the beads on with the other helps develop the ability to use hands cooperatively. This set includes 108 beads and 20 cards.
