I brought pattern blocks into my G10 class last month. While the idea was to support and review fractions, their focus was to play with the blocks… see how high they could be stacked. While I know that they could benefit from continued exposure to these manipulatives, since they have not had a history of using them, I’m facing a challenge to get the buy in needed to support their learning. Again… consistency vs intensity would be a good path to follow here. Building the expectations over time, rather than just singular intense interaction.
