"IT'S SO FUN!"
Recently, I visited a classroom where they were working on a patterning lesson. They told me, "I am making repeating patterns and patterns by 2s, and 5s." Students were excitedly choosing various items to show their patterns. I asked students, "What are you learning?" They replied with, "Patterns are everywhere." When asked what was fun about it a few answers were "It's so fun I can't expain. I feel like I'm learning and playing. It makes want to do more."
