THIS RESOURCE INCLUDES:
At the beginning of the unit, follow these lesson plans or use the ideas to supplement your curriculum. There are 3 weeks or 15 lesson plan ideas covering patterns.
First of all, print this patterns poster on a poster or simply print and laminate for your math wall. As a matter of fact, this poster shows the definition, vocabulary, examples and modeling of different patterns. In addition, use the blank poster throughout the unit and add to each section as you introduce it.
Next, print the vocabulary cards (pattern, repeat, identify, extend, create, sequence) and introduce the definitions and sentences throughout the unit.
After the lessons, complete an interactive page together each week. During the first week, have learners sort the pattern cards and non pattern cards. After that, learners may glue the patterns onto a notebook or page. After they glue, they will color a pattern and extend the pattern on the pull slip provided for continued practice. Last, learners may create a specific pattern sequence using the flipcards (print front and back).
First, read aloud Lots and Lots of Zebra Stripes. Then, use the 5 mini-lessons provided to introduce patterns to your learners. Lessons include pattern walks, copying sound and movement patterns, read aloud activities, partner work and more.
Then, read aloud Pattern FIsh. After the read aloud, use the 5 mini-lessons provided to help extend patterns with your learners. Lessons include read aloud activities, identifying pattern sequences, extending with pattern visuals, extending patterns with manipulatives and more.
Next, read aloud Teddy Bear Patterns. After the read aloud, use the 5 mini-lessons provided allow learners to create new patterns. In this unit, lessons include partner work, anchor charts for the pattern process, read aloud activities and more.

In this center, students will match pattern cards to complete the puzzle piece.
