If this is the standard AB pattern, I would use movement patterns and later pair movements with the colors, shapes, etc.

So you could do... up/down/up/down/up/down (stand/squat) or touch head/knees/head/knees/head/knees, etc.

If he gets that, pair them up.
As you both say red, blue, red, blue, red, blue...
Both of you clap, tap(legs), clap, tap, clap, tap...

Say the pattern in a very dramatic, rhythmic way for best results.

Say and do the ABAB pattern together and then stop at the 5th or 6th B and wait for him to finish it. If he starts doing that, he may continue on with the pattern...

Let us know if you mean the ABABABA-ABABABA pattern instead.

Hope this helps.
