Mia Meow has been visiting preschool classes this week, learning about shapes and patterns. I shared this painting of her and had the children help me tell her story. Not only did they discover the pattern in the rays of the sun, they had a lot of fun chanting, “Oh, my! Oh my! Mia Meow!”

Mia Meow Cat Character Children's book by artist BZTATMia Meow was a curious cat.

Oh, my! Oh my! Mia Meow!

Mia Meow was an artist’s cat.

Oh, my! Oh my! Mia Meow!

Mia Meow thought she was all that.

Oh, my! Oh my! Mia Meow!

Mia Meow, what a silly little cat!

Lesson: Today, Mia Meow is wondering, what is that big thing up in the sky? The center is round, and it has pointy things all around it. The center is a (CIRCLE) and it is colored (YELLOW). The pointy things are (TRIANGLES) and some are colored (RED) and some are colored (ORANGE). She noticed that there was a pattern to the triangles. There was a red triangle, then an orange triangle then a red one and then an orange one again. “Wow!” said Mia. “I found a pattern!”

Oh, my! Oh my! Mia Meow!

Mia decided to draw a picture of the big thing up in the sky, making a circle, and coloring in the triangles around it with the repeating pattern.

What is that big thing up in the sky that Mia discovered? What shapes did she find? What colors are the shapes? Can you find the pattern in the triangles?

Mia Meow would love it if you made a picture like hers! (Adults can find a sun pattern template via Google images to use). Can you make a pattern like the one Mia Meow found?

Life is an Adventure!
