This week we tackled Math journals (again). After reviewing how to set up the page, I gave the students one question “How many patterns can you make with a circle, a square, and a triangle?”. As I walked around the room, it was easy to see who had mastered the basics, who was peeking across the table to look for more ideas, and who was thinking creatively. The students were so quiet and worked diligently for 15 minutes or more! While some students created AB or ABC patterns, others had produced ten or more variations with multiple elements. It was clear by the number, and difficulty, of the patterns created who needed more practice, and who had a firm grasp on repeating patterns. Next we’ll see who has mastered increasing patterns!

This is a great idea, Trisha! I’m going to give it a try with my class in our Math Journals. I’ll be sure to let you know how we make out! 🙂
