Patterns, Patterns, Patterns

Our Math focus for the first few weeks of school was on patterning.  Each grade level had different expectations to meet in order to show that they understood some principles around patterns.  As you were aware we also looked for and explored patterns in nature.  Below are a few photos of some of the different ways we were learning about patterns.  You will notice that there are some simple repeating pattern activities, growing patterns, shrinking patterns, growing and shrinking patterns, number patterns etc. In a multi-aged classroom, it is important that each child understand their expected learning intention, yet have an opportunity to work side by side with those on their own learning journey.  We all have arrived together into our class exactly as we should, and together we are helping each other become the best learners (in this case patterning experts) that we can be.
