Kindergarten Math

We are in the third unit of our math Investigations program.  The focus of this unit is patterning.  Today students worked on building patterns using a variety of math manipulatives.  They were able to create patterns with 2 color counters, pattern blocks, unifix (interlocking) cubes, and  plastic bears.  Most of our patterns were color patterns.  I asked students to think about how we might build patterns without using colors.  We will continue our work on patterning during the month of December.
