This mini-unit was designed to teach and reinforce picture and number patterns. Included are 5 days of lesson plans, 69 pages of teaching slides to accompany your instruction, 6 worksheets and answer keys, 1 partner or center activity, and a 1 page quiz and answer key.
The patterns taught in this unit include repeating picture patterns, growing picture patterns, increasing and decreasing number patterns, and patterns in a table. The 69 pages of teaching slides will walk you through, step by step, how to introduce the day's objective, explain the pattern, model and practice identifying and extending each pattern, and will engage students in reflecting on their learning. Several of the teaching slides can be used as anchor charts or posters.
This unit was designed for and tested by a second grade class, but I believe the materials can be adapted to supplement a first or third grade curriculum.
I hope you and your students enjoy this product as much as my class did!
