The Patterns of Skip Counting
Skip counting is all about how equal groups are added on, one at a time, to build a growing pattern. But do students really understand this mathematical pattern? Can students feel these same patterns in movement? Or hear these patterns as rhythms? This book of lessons helps students move past rote memorization and learn to find skip counting patterns in the world around us.
When students have a strong conceptual understanding of skip counting, they can easily make connections between telling time, combining coin value, and multiplication.
Kids are up and moving during Moving Through Math! Your students will be performing rhythm and movement patterns, collaborating with partners, and driving their own learning! After enjoying active learning, students can easily extended their thinking using math manipulatives, and draw and label pictures to build student portfolios.
Rhythm and Movement Cards are needed to teach the lessons in this book.
