So often teachers are asked to teach math standards—whether they be from the Common Core or other rigorous standards—and aren’t given enough help. This edition focuses on helping you teach students about more advanced patterns--generating, extending, and describing both shape and number patterns. (4.OA.C.5) This resource is geared toward solving a few problems for teachers!

  • We need to know what the standards really mean—and be able to break that into student-friendly language. We get so little professional development; I want my resources to help make it easier for you.

  • We need the ability to assess the standards…and sometimes more than once if we want to pre and post test OR test, intervene with students, and then test again to check for growth.

  • *We need meaningful, ready-to-go activities that can be used in math centers or for small group instruction. Sometimes we need low-ink versions of them!

  • We need to be able to differentiate for our more capable students as well. Having extension activities built in saves the day!

  • We need students to be able to do error analysis and think, critique, and write deeply about math—not just fill in the blanks.

  • We need a way of tracking who is ready to move on and who needs more help and who needs more enrichment.


What’s Included?


  • Clearly worded standard page (CCSS Aligned)
  • Teaching tips and suggestions
  • Assessment options (2 forms) to use as pre- and post- tests or as test and retest
  • 12 task cards to use as a math center or with a small instructional group
  • 4 “challenge” cards addressing the same standard but pushing for deeper thinking and application
  • Recording sheets for both sets of task cards
  • Error analysis/critiquing reasoning reproducible
  • Class recording sheet to monitor who is in need of intervention, who is on track, and who needs enrichment.

I hope you find this helpful as you work to teach the standards and meet the needs of all your students. I would encourage you to download the preview for even more information.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.
