Nicole, when you mention how young students are adept to finding patterns, this really holds true for me as an educator who works with 5-8 year olds. They are good at seeing patterns and it is important for us to give them the language to describe what they see. Introducing them to the idea of “half” or “twice as more as” or “double” can help develop the building blocks of proportional reasoning or multiplicative thinking.
