We love mathematics!
Kindergarten love to explore patterns and make connections in many different ways. We created patterns with strawberries, grapes and marshmallows. We strengthened our addition and subtraction strategies by eating our patterns and creating different ones.
We explored patterns with number using playing cards and discussed giving values to our strawberries, grapes and marshmallows. If a strawberry has the value of 2, a grape has the value of 2 and a marshmallow has the value of 4 then…..
Strawberry, strawberry, marshmallow, grape, grape = 12
Which is the same as
2 + 2 + 4 + 2 +2 = 12
