Understanding Patterns and Relationships in Math

 Teaching patterns to young children prepares them for the study of algebra which involves the understanding of patterns and relationships. A pattern is a series or objects, events or attributes that repeat based on an observable rule. A rule is a set way to calculate or solve the problem. Before children can even begin to interpret patterns they must be able to focus on one or more attributes of objects or situations. They must be able to make comparisons of similarities and differences in occurrences to establish relationships.

Patterns BOOM Cards

If you're looking for a great set of interactive task cards for practicing patterns then you have come to the right blog! Here are a few BOOM card decks available. In each activity students will drag and drop the correct picture to complete the pattern. The decks are available in six (6) patterns: AB, AAB, ABB, AABB, ABC and AABC patterns.

 There are four (4) different themes: farm animals theme. forest animals, bugs and insects and ocean animals theme.

Parts of A Sentence Anchor Charts

  Many students, at the early levels, struggle with writing simple and sentences. We constantly remind them of what a complete sentence looks like, but they still struggle to create their own correctly. A lot of work and repetition comes into play when it comes to sentence writing. It helps a lot when they are given the perfect visual clues and reminders to make the right connection. That's why I created these Parts of A Sentence Anchor Charts / Posters!




This resource includes 11 different anchor charts covering the parts of a sentence. Included are colored and black ‘n white full-page versions and mini versions. The mini versions are perfect for interactive notebooks, or students’ desks. They can also be used to guide your virtual teaching.

This pack includes:  

- Parts of a Sentence (5 posters)

-Subject of a Sentence

-Predicate of a Sentence

-Object of a Sentence

-Finding the Subject

-What is a Phrase

-What is a Clause
