Great People Pattern Energizers: Do with your whole class

Posted on April 12, 2012. Filed under: Classroom environment, Elementary math | Tags: , , |


Here are some people patterns that really can get your class moving.  I would project them on the overhead or pull them up on the interactive board and have the students do them as a class.  They are a quick math energizer that gets everyone doing a little bit of exercise too!

Great Function Machine Game! Great Partner Center Activity

Here is a great game that can be used in a variety of ways.  First, I would use this with a small guided math group so that I could work with students about thinking about the input and output.  I would facilitate the discussion as the students took turns operating the machine.  Next, I would have students play this game with a partner at the computer center.  One partner would do the input and the other would have to explain what happened in the output.  Finally, I would have this as an individual center where students played by themselves.

Happy Mathing,
