Hi! I am student teaching in kindergarten and I really love it. I am trying to come up with a good anticipatory set, a hook, for a lesson I am doing. For those familiar with the Investigations curriculum, I will be doing a lesson titled "Make a train" in which the students will be using interlocking cubes with a partner, rolling dice and making a train of cubes. The main objective is that they will be learning to view patterns as "units" (blue, green, blue, green isn't the pattern, but rather blue, green is the unit that repeats.) OKAY-so my problem is, I need a good hook for this lesson. A good children's story or something related to patterns, or the like. I am having some trouble finding something good to kick off the lesson. I will be observed for this lesson so I want to make sure it is great! Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!!!!
