Counting Patterns with iPads

This week we further developed our knowledge of counting patterns through the use of concrete materials, the camera roll app, Skitch and Explain Everything. Students began the workflow by making bundles of ten with matchsticks. They then photographed their bundles and annotated them in Skitch. Following the annotations, students recorded themselves counting their bundles of tens. Not only is it now a concrete sample for me to see who can count and write the tens pattern, but it was a far more interesting way of practising counting compared to the ol’ chanting method. Next step: 5s, 2s…
