What does Algebra look like in the early grades?
We have developed 60 early grade activities on Patterns and Algebra just for you, the busy teacher. From an early age, learning to recognize patterns and sets creates the foundation for working with algebraic topics. Our Patterns and Algebra activities are designed to assist teachers in laying the necessary groundwork for success in algebra in later years. These 60 activities help teachers implement new techniques that will enhance student achievement in their classroom. Teachers your students will become patterns experts with these 60 fun activities. Students will learn how to identify copy, create and extend patterns in a variety of formats.
Our Patterns and Algebra activities enable students to—
?Identify, describe, and extend concrete and pictorial patterns in
order to make predictions and solve problems.
?Use patterns to skip count by twos, fives, and tens.
?Find patterns in numbers, including odd and even.
?Compare and order whole numbers using place value.
?Use patterns to develop strategies to solve basic addition and
basic subtraction problems.
?Identify patterns in related addition and subtraction sentences
such as fact families for sums to 18.
The activities can be used to Assess concepts, Introduce concepts, Review concepts, and to help students Retain the concepts that have been taught. Our Math Activities can be used in a variety of ways to “AIRR” out your math curriculum.
Section One contains a numbered list of activities. Each activity is explained using a step-by-step process identifying the group size and materials needed to complete the task. Some of the activities have matching activity cards and practice sheets which are found in Section Two, Activity Sheets. The top right side of each set of activity cards, and practice sheet corresponds with the matching activity number. An answer key is conveniently provided in Section Three.
Our math activities are aligned to the following standards:
