Explore and create patterns with these free pattern templates. Great for preschool and Kindergartners with ideas for extending the learning.

A hundred chart is one of the best math resources you can have available for your child. It can help with counting, number recognition, adding and subtracting, and even discovering number patterns.

Let me just start by saying that I absolutely love my little town. There is a certain charm that comes with living in a small, tight knit community. It’s been a HUGE adjustment getting used to being so far away from so many things…mainly the mall and Starbuck’s. The downside to living out this far …

Kindergartners love patterns. Or should I say "pat-ter-ens." They're super fun! But what they don't know is that they are an essential building block in their understanding about numbers. What starts out in kindergarten as making pretty designs with pattern blocks eventually leads to skip counting, repeated addition (and therefore multiplication and division), algebraic reasoning, and beyond! So it's important that we provide them with a solid foundation. Day 1 I want my students to…

Use this patterns foldable to have students show understanding of each pattern unit. Students illustrate an example of each "unit" inside foldable. ...

We've been discussing the implications of the Common Core State Standards for over a year now in my district. As with everything, there is a process! Last year, we unpacked the literacy portion and made some decisions about our curriculum (Readers and Writers Workshops got modified). This is the binder that our literacy coach, Kate put together for us. It was printed off of the CCSS site and then bound at Office Depot. We went through and tabbed the sections for easy reference…

I promise I haven't fallen off the planet. :) You all know that my hubby is a HS football coach and that I have a {now} 7 month old... YES! I said 7 month old. I can't believe it! Hopefully now that football season is over in our house things will start to slow down a little. {yeah right, huh?}. We have been OH SO busy in first grade. SOOO busy that I have not been good at taking pictures and blogging about our learning. :( These past few week has been a lot of fun. We have been learning…

Students sit back to back with the box of pattern blocks in the middle of them. One student makes a design using 4 or 5 pattern blocks. Then, that student tries to explain to his/her partner what the design looks like and the partner tries to create the exact design without looking!

Here is a great way to use those plastic eggs. Seperate them and use them to stack and pattern. Easy, peasy, cheap and fun.

Again I am not sure we will be patterning with Common Core, but just in case someone can use these ideas. We made Twizzler ...

I don't know who loves math work stations more-me or my students! It is one of the few parts of our day that is actually going very smoothly. Here's what we're up to this week: Station 1: Counting Game (The kids count how many objects are on the picture card and match it to the corresponding number card. Each kid in the partnership gets their own little baggie of picture and number cards to work with.) Station 2: Apple in my Lunch Game (Kids roll a dice and place a cube on the apple that…
