This week we did some practice with skip counting by two’s and continued practicing even vs. odd. Students were given a handful of blocks and had to sort the blocks into groups of two. Once sorted, I went around and had each student skip count their blocks for me and identify if they had an even or odd number or blocks. After completely this individually, students joined with their neighbor to skip count a larger number. Then we combined all the blocks at their table and their group had to work together to skip count all their blocks. Finally students joined another table and had to skip count their blocks which for most groups was over 100. They really enjoyed this activity.
Then later this week, we began discussing patterns. A kind of pattern was listed on the board and students were required to create this pattern using the blocks. Check out our ABC patterns below!

I have added a tab at the top of this website with different enrichment activities you can do at home throughout the year. I will continue to update and add to this list as the year goes on. Sometimes I will put things that apply specifically to what we are learning about while others will be open-ended so you can adapt them how you wish to our units. These of course are not required activities but just something for those that want a little extra!
This year has already started off to a fabulous start. Can’t wait to see all the amazing things that lie ahead! We have been working really hard this week to learn the class rules and expectations and getting back into the swing of things.
