I used the cube train page at the beginning of our unit as we were just learning to create and label patterns. Mid-way through the unit, the kids used the same page to create specific patterns assigned to them (such as ABCC). At the end of the unit, we used the page yet again as the students drew patterns, labeled them, and then circled the units.
We had our first genuinely cold day here today so it's beginning to feel like Christmas! Although I was freezing all day so I think I'd prefer a 70 degree December, but the kids do love the cold air. I'll be back later this week with some fun holiday ideas!
