Patterning: Differentiated Daily Math for Ontario 3-6



Meet ALL of your student’s math needs with these Differentiated Daily Math Pages for Patterning
These pages are unique because they use a common page for all students but allow you to increase and decrease the complexity of the task. One page can accommodate all students regardless of their current level. Support all of your students, from gifted and talented to those with special education needs and everyone in between. The common daily page makes the activity familiar and helps establish a growth mindset in math as students watch their confidence grow as they master the familiar activities. Easy to prep for the teacher since there is only one page to get ready with multiple entry points for all students. Saving some much-needed planning time for busy and hard-working teachers. They can also double as homework pages as new numbers can be used at home for extra practice.
No more planning different activities for different abilities in your classroom. These pages allow multiple entry points for students at various levels and allow your students to master the various tasks at their own pace. :
★ common but flexible first-page
★ word problems can be used for independent, guided, and whole-group lessons.
★ Interactive activities that will get students thinking and talking.
★ easily differentiated to meet a variety of needs
★ hands-on problems
Activities Include
★ extend, describe and create simple increasing and decreasing number patterns with addition and subtraction
★ complex & and multi-step increasing and decreasing number patterns with both addition and subtraction
★ table of values

Do your students need help problem solving and explaining their thinking? Check out this new strategy I developed to help students work through a word problem from beginning to end.



What do you mean differentiated?

  • These are differentiated because you can use one page for every student. This means that your students working with below grade-level expectations or above will also do the same pages. They are differentiated because the questions are designed to increase or decrease the complexity based on the fraction you start with.


How does it work?

Each day you will give students one double-sided page. Page one includes familiar practice pages.

This page is repeated and familiar each day. However, the work each day is different. As you work through this front page, the questions become familiar and routine as students master these skills through routine and practice.

On page two then there is a problem of the day. This problem can be used as a modelled lesson, a partner activity, the basis for your number talks, or quick assessments.


If everyone is doing something different, isn’t it more work?

Actually, it is less!! There is less work because you have less prep. By grouping students, you can give each group a different starting point each day. They use their numbers to show mastery. Because the pages are familiar, it is easy to track growth and understanding quickly as students are working.


Are there answer pages?

YES! There are answer pages. These pages are differentiated, so each student’s answers might differ depending on where they choose to place objects on their grids or on which skills you have determined different groups to complete. Therefore the answer pages all provide sample answers to give you an idea of how they are used. I have also included teacher tips on these answer pages to help you further.


Is this a full unit of your science and social studies products? This is a different type of product completely. I use these as the basis of my own math program, but the purpose of this is flexibility. They can be used as homework practice, your core practice, bell work, assessment, practice…the uses are endless. Use these pages to supplement your program and integrate them into your number talks, hands-on activities, games, etc.
