Description of Activities and Setting

We will do a small activity that involves me showing the students a

pattern of 2-3 movements ( clap hands, stop feet, and pat legs) and have
the students join in, until all the students are participating in the
movement pattern. Then I will use the smartboard and show patterns
such as 1, 2, 3, 4 or 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4 and have the students guess what
comes next. Lastly I will ask the students some questions about what
they know about patterns and how did they know what order to do the
movements in? We will then go over two different sets of cube trains
(one with a pattern and one without, both with 8 cubes) and talk about
what is different and what is the same
I will hand out cubes to each student and have them make their own
cube trains with 8 cubes only. They will make two cube trains, one with
a pattern and one without. I will circulate around and have students
describe to me their arrangements for their cube trains and how they
know they are different.
We will come back together and briefly review what a patterned and
what a non-patterned cube train is. I will have students observe their
classmates cube trains and see if they can tell which train is the
repeating pattern and which is not. I will then ask students if there is a
way to group the cube trains together, what are they and is there more
than one way to group the trains.
After the small group lesson learning about patterns for the first time,
the students will join their classmates and they will go into table
centers. At table centers, they will continue working on building
patterns based on the instructions given with the materials and help
form teachers circulating around the room.
Do they see the difference between patterns and non-patterns? What is
a pattern? Did students use only 8 cubes for their trains, and could they
make trains with and without patterns, and now the difference?
