I have two magnificent math books to share with you!  I LOVE both these books about patterns and the kids LOVE them too. My students couldn't wait to create their own pattern creature. During shared writing time we wrote a bug pattern poem too.

Pattern Jumps On The Number Line
I am teaching a new math program {Think Math} this year and this lesson was challenging for students. The students do AB and ABC jumps on the number line. 

Making AB and ABC.
 The kids also write numbers on the number line {under the dot}. One of my favorite things about Think Math is that they do lots of lessons with the number line. 

Some number patterns we explored
{2,4,6,} {10,20,30} {3,6,8} 

Mystery Pattern Riddles 

I did some of these mystery riddles with students who have a 
strong understanding of patterns. We worked on the AB riddles. Next week I plan to do some ABC riddles. There is a blank template to let your students write riddles too.

  1. I like how you're exposing them to number lines by using patterns. Sweet.
