Comments about Melissa & Doug What Comes Next? Self-Correcting Sequence Puzzles:
Bought this to use with young children in therapy sessions. A good idea would have been to provide a clear plastic cover to protect the game pieces and to keep them from falling out.
Ask the child to identify all the colors in a sequence.
Help the child identify the color unit in each sequence. (A 'unit' is the grouping of items that a pattern repeats. All of the items in a pattern are represented in a single unit, in the same order every time.)
While observing a completed selection of sequence cards, ask the child to identify the incomplete patterns (where the final unit is unfinished). Ask the child to tell you what colors are needed to complete the unfinished units and complete the patterns.
Identify details in each picture that change from item to item and unit to unit. (For instance, the position of flowers, number of bees, or clouds in the background.)
Ask the child to choose a sequence card, then to use paper and crayons or markers to complete the sequence. Encourage the child to continue the pattern to fill an entire page.
Use blocks, beads, stickers, or other objects to help the child create a repeating color pattern. For an added challenge, begin the pattern with one type of object, then ask the child to continue the same color sequence with another type of object.
