This game is perfect for your small group instructions. It is a fast-paced game that will allow students to practice identifying different patterns (both growing and repeating).
The teacher (or card caller) will evenly distribute the picture cards. Then, the teacher will hold up one of the calling cards. The first person who slaps their card that matches what is on the teacher's calling card and says "splat" is allowed to remove the card. The first person to remove all their cards is the winner!
