 Thanks to some great ideas from some of my favorite Bloggers, my students had a blast creating patterns in our Pattern Centers this week. They are really getting the idea of patterns and naming them "ABA, AAB, ABC etc..."  Most years this is very hard, but not this year! Here are some photos and I am going to do my best to give credit to the creator of the worksheet.  Please forgive me if I make a mistake and please let me know.
We also did this great Fall Pattern Book by Fran Kramer. It took a bit longer with all of the cutting and pasting, but it was worth it!  Pattern cut and paste book

Great I can't wait for the link for the cube patterns. Love what I see so far. Congrats!


Thank you Holly and Jackie for the sweet comments! I just posted the link for the cube patterns. They are from Heidi Butkus!


Where on earth did you get those bear stamps? I would really like to get them.


They came from our old MathLand adoption along with the bear counters. I love some of the old stuff! I am not sure where you can get them now, but I'm sure someone in Blogland does!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments and for following my blog!

Welcome to blogland. I too am a Northern CA teacher, just a little farther north than you. Thanks for reminding me to get my bear stamps out from my Mathland Tubs. I love what I see so far. Keep on blogging.
