Are you using interactive math notebooks in your classroom? I love them! This lesson on generating a number pattern that follows a given rule contains everything you need for your interactive notebook. It includes a preview which leads into the lesson. It also has numerous slides for the interactive learning part of the lesson and a process for students to practice independently. This lesson displays nicely on a whiteboard for whole group instruction, computers and tablets for small group instruction, or can be used for individual one on one individualized instruction. If used for whole group instruction, it allows for group or partner discussion, a great way to build community in the classroom. This can be a fun and engaging way to teach generating a number pattern that follows a given rule.
This resource contains 25 full color slides that focus on generating a number pattern that follows a given rule through the gradual release model. Also included are left and right side activities for the interactive notebook. The preview slide includes a pattern in which the students have to complete and are then asked to write the rule for that pattern. This is a good way to lead into the lesson and have a group discussion on patterns. Several of the slides are great visual aids to help differentiate instruction for all learners through chunking and repetition. The process can be used as an exit ticket to see what the students have learned. Be creative and do what works best for you and your students.
