Combine math and classroom decor with our decorative apple pennants! I'm sharing them with you from my TpT store!
Use the yellow, pink and green pennants to create a repeating patterns. Make lots of different patterns with your students as a mini-lesson and then vote on the pattern to display in the classroom. A blackline version is available too if you'd prefer students to color or paint them!
Some patterns could be:
pink, yellow, green, pink, yellow, green
pink, pink, yellow, pink, pink, yellow
green, pink, green, pink, green pink
I printed these pennants at 4-to-a-page to make them tiny!
As well as making and talking about the patterns with your class:
ask your students how the pattern could be shown in movements
e.g. pink, yellow, green could be jump, leap, hop, jump, leap, hop
encourage students to perform a pattern in a movement or PE lesson
ask students how the pattern could be heard in sound
e.g. pink, yellow, green could be clap, tap, click finger
ask students to perform the pattern with sounds
ask students how the pattern could be shown with numbers
e.g. pink, yellow, green could be 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3
ask students to write the number pattern
Over in the coloring club you can find an apple page - you could also have your students paint or color to match the display pattern!
Find the pennants with an accompanying digital recording page - over in my store!
Also available is a set of pattern activity cards - great for morning bins, small group math or learning centers.
