Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful night!

Please note we have changed our morning routine. As of 8:25, I will be picking up students from the gym and bringing them back to our room until 8:40, at which point we will begin to make our way down to the auditorium for announcements. Any students arriving before 8:25 must go directly to the gym to be signed in to Before Care until I pick them up at. Students being dropped off between 8:25 and 8:40 can remain in the classroom until we head to announcements. Thank you for your cooperation.

**Please send your child to school everyday in their gym uniform. They will change into their school uniform after gym. Please ensure that your child has all the pieces of the school uniform.**

**Please sign up for Remind using option B on the handout. Text the message @mrshoce to the number (289) 278-3321.**


Today we discussed how to create number patterns. We did this buy using an input/output machine. For example, if +5 is in the machine we can have an input of 1 and an output of 6 (1 + 5 = 6). If our input was 2 then our output would be 7 (2 + 5 = 7).

**Please keep it mind that any operation (+ - X or /) can be uses! Mulitplication charts were handed out to assist students with multiplication and division.**

Examples on the board!

Hard at work!

Key points to remember:

A growing pattern grows and gets bigger – 3, 4, 6, 9, 13.

A shrinking pattern gets smaller – 12, 10 8, 6.

A repeating pattern repeats itself, using a core pattern 8, 5, 1, 8, 5, 1. The core is 8, 5, 1.

We also discussed pattern rules. A pattern rule tells us the number to start at and what we should go up or down by. A pattern rule is always written like this – Start at 5 and add 1 each time.
