# 2.7: Peculiar Patterns

**Peculiar Patterns - Extend Patterns**

**Teacher Notes**

Students identify the pattern among rows of a letter tower and then continue the pattern to complete the next two rows. Patterns require students to know the sequence of letters in the alphabet and to be able to print those letters. Complete patterns 1 and 2 with the students, before having them complete the remaining patterns on their own.
