1-2-3 Come Pattern With Me!
I usually passed out several colored manipulatives like Unifix cubes or patterning blocks, so that my students could complete the patterns and show me one of their own and then name it as well. i.e. ABAB etc.
I wanted to think of something different to do, as a math center, for Dr. Seuss Week, so I frogged around with a variety of things a child could create with the stripes on a Cat in the Hat hat.
The result is the 10-page packet: Dr. Seuss Hat Pactterning
I think your students will enjoy these hands-on activities and game.
They are an easy and fun way to whole-group assess patterning.
There's also several art "craftivities" as well, including my Y5's favorite, designing their own Seuss hat.
