It's A Pattern! Stop, Share, & Reflect


Tip: It’s a Pattern! Stop, Share, and Reflect

How do I do it?
Create a special signal or a sign (paint stir sticks work great!) that students can use when they see a pattern in math.  Give students the power to stop the whole class in it’s tracks, share the pattern they have discovered, then the class can (whole, pairs, or individually) reflect on why the pattern happened and what it might mean.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
