by Emily Ball Cicchini
Pattern Nation is Pollyanna's third installment of the adventures of Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow, some unlikely friends who explore patterns found in music, nature and visual art, as well as patterns in human behavior. Pollyanna's youngest patrons loved Patterns and then More Patterns, making these returning characters some of the most popular characters Cicchini has ever created. This play is a fast-paced theatrical exploration that gives children in the audience an opportunity to recognize, as well as make, many different patterns, the building blocks of pre-literacy.
Pattern Recognition Skills are vital to pre-literacy. Young learners can not begin to master basic math or reading without the ability to recognize simple patterns. PATTERN NATION brings this practice to life on the stage.
