I designed this math unit because my grade 1/2 students had been working on repeating patterns and I needed to teach the grade 2 students to understand growing and shrinking patterns. I wanted to create a series of lessons that would take them from creating simple growing and shrinking patterns with pictures and manipulatives to being able to look at a string of numbers and state the rule.
This unit has been tested on my grade 1/2 class and even the majority of my grade 1 students were able to successfully complete most of the lessons with us.
This unit includes:
-All of the Smart Notebook files you will need to teach whole-group lessons
-Handouts for students to practice individually as well as with a partner
-A final assessment
-The curriculum expectations
-A learning goal and success criteria
The format of this product is a zip file. The files inside are a Smart Notebook file and pdfs of the handouts. Please make sure you can open these types of files before purchasing the product. I hope this unit helps your students master some fairly complex expectations.
