Sorry for the delay in posting this sweet friends. I had a last minute doctor’s appointment down in the city today and was frantically setting up for a sub last night and just ran out of time.
In Monday’s post I blogged about patterning and posted a little ice cream pattern worksheet. I also mentioned a little craftivity that went with it. I know patterning isn’t part of the common core, but I still think it is still a valid concept (especially when you throw numbers in . . . great call, Fran). Also, I have found that spending a few days at the beginning of the year playing around with this concept is the perfect way to build them up for our long afternoons that are jam-packed with math, phonics, and specials.
On that note, here’s my ice cream pattern craft. The kids were given 6 circles and a triangle and were asked to create a pattern by coloring the “scoops.” In past years, I had die-cut circles in various colors for them to use. However, this “coloring” version was so much better! I could also see if they could build a pattern on their own. I also could pinpoint who was struggling “putting it together.” My sweeties had an absolute ball with this. Take a look-see . . .
