In a single notebook, many original patterns are offered to primary school children, to help them improve concentration, explore geometric concepts, practice pre-graphism skills and relax in moments of free time. Children will discover that examples of beauty can be found everywhere: in the patterns and symmetries of a party tablecloth, but also walking down the street, perhaps observing the gates and iron bars of the houses. And, at the same time, they will be able to:

  • experiment with patience and concentration;
  • harmonize class times and enhance breaks;
  • practice graphic lines;
  • develop orientation skills on paper and in planning the design;
  • recognize sequences and symmetries;
  • discover hands-on the geometry of shapes forms.

100 patterns to:

  • complete
  • copy
  • reproduce with the included set square

What is the Analogical Method
Conceived by the teacher Camillo Bortolato, the Analogical Method leverages children’s intuition to transform the learning of mathematics and the Italian language into a joyful flight of discovery, an effective study method capable of accompanying children in learning in a natural way: through metaphors and analogies.
