• Draws horizontal, vertical and slant lines (free hand).

• Distinguishes between straight and curved lines.

• Identifies objects by observing their shadows.

**9. PATTERNS**

• Observes and extends patterns in sequence of shapes and numbers.

• Searches for patterns in different ways of splitting a number.

• Creates block patterns by stamping thumbprints, leaf prints, vegetable prints, etc.
