Today during Math we created patterns at different stations. Working in groups we had 6 minutes to create a pattern using a bucket of materials. Interestingly, although the pattern names at each station didn’t change the manner in which the … Continue reading →
We are creating patterns in math. First we learned some important pattern vocabulary such as: core, term, repeating, and attributes. Now we are creating patterns with manipulatives as well as drawings.
Pattern Block Problem Solving! This afternoon students worked with pattern blocks to solve some puzzling pictures. I believe the record of cards completed is 15 by Fredie and Francis. This was such a fun way to explore some of the math … Continue reading →
We used pattern blocks to create pattern block turkeys. First we worked and played with pattern blocks to create the pattern we wanted. Then, we substituted paper pattern blocks for the wooden pattern blocks and glued the turkey tail feathers to black paper. This was very tricky as the patterns kept shifting and changing! Finally, we added the turkey bodies, eyes, wattle, and feet. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We had pattern stations during Math class today. It was absolutely amazing to walk around and see everyone working so well together to create their patterns. Each station had a certain pattern to create and it was interesting to note the different ways … Continue reading →
Our new classroom display celebrates our love of Math! This month we are working hard on creating and extending patterns of 3 to 5 elements. Parents, you can help support our Math learning at home. Ask your child to make and name patterns with household objects. Ask your child what kind of attributes a pattern can have? (Hint- colour, shape or size). Ask you child how many times a group has to repeat for it to be a pattern? (Hint- 3 or more times).
