Why not integrate some Halloween fun into a math unit on patterns?
My classroom aide cut out pumpkins, black construction paper, and streamers:
After a quick review of AB and AAB patterns, my Stars used the streamers to decorate the bottom of each pumpkin with an ABC pattern:
The black construction paper was used for triangle eyes and silly smiles for our jack-o-lanterns:
The Stars then added a short strip of green fiesta fringe (purchased at Michael's) for the stem:
Now "pattern jacks" greet us each day when we come to class!
