Kindergarten pattern names

After our first art project, where we learned about and drew different types of lines-zig zag, wavy, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, dotted, etc, we learned about pattern. We read the book "Pattern Bugs" and learned to find patterns all around us. We began by writing out our names as largely as possible on 6inx18in paper. Using crayons and oil pastels, we found shapes in our letters and in between our letters. Within each shape we repeated one line type to make a different pattern. On the following week of art class, we read the book " I ain't gonna paint no more". We discussed how to properly and effectively use watercolor paints and painted a different color within each shapes. The oil based crayons and pastels resisted the watercolor, allowing our lines to show through.
