I'm sorry it's been a little while since my last post. My husband was out of town last week, making it a much more busy week.
Here's what the second week of math looked like in my classroom:
Whole Group Lessons:
I gave each of the kids a pattern block template from our Everyday Math program. They were allowed to create any pattern using the shapes. I was really impressed with how they turned out.
The kids worked in partnerships to create patterns with either bears, Unifix cubes, or links. One person created a pattern and the other had to copy it. They had to make three different patterns.
To the right is an activity I like to do each year. Each child is given Fruit Loops to create a pattern of choice. They glue them on then label their pattern by color, number and letter. They always like this activity because they get to each the leftover cereal!

We also did the name pattern sheet, but I forgot to take pictures of it. I blogged about it earlier here. You can get a free copy of that page by clicking on the link.
Making Homework OPTIONAL Is the Way to Go!
