Counting patterns

We have a quick Maths focus on skip counting and counting patterns.  This exploration will help us get ready to investigate the concept of multiplication.
How far can you get counting out loud by 2s in one minute? What number do you get up to if you write down counting by 5s for one minute? Can you think of a skip counting pattern challenge for your classmates to try?

It is an expectation that in Year two students can describe a number pattern, identify missing numbers within a pattern and create a counting pattern.  If you found this tricky, this could be a good thing to practice at home.

Can you make some patterns using the SPLAT chart?  Once you have made a pattern you can print it off and describe the pattern underneath.
