  • Dr. Jessilyn Santos
    ED350: Teaching Strategies
    April 28, 2011
    Lesson Presentation
  • GRADE: KindergartenSUBJECT: MathTOPIC: Algebra Patterns
  • Standards
    Standard 4: Understand patterns, relations, and functions.
    K.4.1 Recognize, describe, create, and extend repeating and growing patterns (e.g., sequences of sounds, objects, or numbers).
    Standard 5: Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols.
    K.5.1 Analyze how repeating patterns are generated (e.g., find the unit of repetition); analyze how growing patterns are generated (e.g., grows by adding so many objects, sounds, or numbers each time).
    Standard 6: Use mathematical models to represent and understand quantitative relationships.
    There is no performance indicator for this standard.
  • Why Teach Patterns in Kindergarten?
    Teaching patterns to kindergarteners is included in the GPSS STANDARDAS and is often categorized under the heading of "Algebra". Algebra is about seeing relationships and as children recognizes and create patterns they begin to see and understand how things work together.
  • Patterning Skills
    What students need to know?
    Students will work towards being able to:
    Create their own patterns at various difficulty levels such as:
    red, blue, red, blue...
    red, blue, yellow, repeat...
    red, red, blue, red, red, blue....
    red, blue, yellow, yellow, yellow
    Copy patterns that others have made
    Extend patterns that others have started
  • Patterning Skills: (cont.)
    Tell what is missing if part of a pattern is hidden
    Compare and talk about patterns that arise from their daily experiences
    Recognize patterns in the environment - e.g. fence posts: short, tall, short, tall...
    Use patterns to describe the world around them and to solve problems
    Identify a pattern
  • Welcome! MRS. JessilynsantosKindergarten Class
    Math Session
  • Movie
  • Patterns Are Fun!
    What is a pattern?
    Is a set of shapes, designs, or numbers that are repeated over and over again.
  • Patterns are fun!
    Why do we need to learn about patterns?
    Understanding patterns will help us learn the basic skill for further mathematics and will help us go on
    By understanding patterns we will be able to see and understand the way things work together.
  • Patterns are Fun!
    Today I will be teaching you 3 main parts to patterns:
    Identifying Patterns
    Identifying the core of Patterns
    Expanding patterns
  • Identifying Patterns
    Patterns are found everywhere in our world. It can be a combination of shapes, designs, or numbers that repeat.
  • Identifying patterns
    Activity: Worksheet (Circle what comes next)
  • Identifying patterns
    Individual/ Group Activity: Linking colored chain.
    Green, yellow, purple, and pink
  • Identify the core of patterns
    The core is the shortest string of elements that repeat
  • Group Activity:
    -Create a Macaroni bracelet using a pattern.
    -Then give your friendshipMacaroni bracelet to your partner
    Identifying the core
  • Song: Guess What’s Next?
    Guess what’s next?
    What could it be?
    There’s a pattern that you can see
    Guess what’s next?
    Can you tell?
    Guess by the time you here the bell.
  • Extending the pattern with the core
    Continuing the pattern
  • Extending the pattern with the core
    Group Activity: Piñata's
    Create a pattern with crepe paper on your piñata with your partner.
    Identify the pattern.
    Identify the core of the pattern
    How many extending patterns?
  • Questions?
