    Can someone explain use of the Clover Patch in RS2?

    I read the TM explanation of the clover patch but I don’t get it. I understand the idea of being able to see things in groups of ten, but I don’t see how that translates to the triplets because there’s no way to tell the difference between the base clovers and the additional pink clovers...or is the amount over the ten supposed to be what the purple clovers are for? They never say what to use those for in the TM.

    There's a R&S 2 sticky on the special needs forum. Here's a blurb I wrote at the very end... I can't get the hyperlinks to attach and work, so swing over to that thread and there's lots of pictures to help ya visualize what they're talking about



    This is the clover patch. It's two folders glued together to make a three page spread. The far right folder has its 'back' trimmed so that the back tab is removed. The "fold" of the right folder is lined up with the right side of the left folder. By cutting that tab off, it folds up to the size of a normal file folder. This part that folds in has a ziploc bag taped in it to keep the pieces and parts. Don't tape it down really tight, or you you won't be able to reach inside the bag to get the clovers out. The color of your clovers is important. You want 10 of the same color (they say pink) and 8 more of a different color (with a few spares of each).

    The pink is "Pink, think 10"; theyre trying to teach the kids visualization of 10 plus. So, they see 10 pink clovers and five others...10+5 is fifteen clovers total. Then they look at bees. If 7 of the pink clovers have bees, then 8 clovers do not have bees. So your triplet is 15, 7 and 8.

      I made the patch last summer, but when I went to use it it was a complete flop. The pink clovers for base ten are the same color as the extra clovers you put in (like the extra 5 to make 15 in your example). How do the kids tell the difference between the base 10 and the additional amount? I think I might try it again, using the purple clovers for the extra amount....unless the purple ones are used for something else later on?

        Yes yes. 10 are one color - pink, 8 are a different color- they say purple, but really any color besides pink would work. Then, they are two sided, some have bees on the back. Really, you could have bees on the back of every single one. The TM would show when to have how many bees showing and then you just flip them over.

        I said, "pink think 10, and how many more? How many is that total?" Alot
