Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Because this download includes the answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheets for students to fill out on their own. 

Make this worksheet more sustainable by taking out the cut and paste element. As a small group lesson or math center activity, print a few copies on cardstock and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can record their answers with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse. 

You can also project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students write down and finish the sequences in their math notebooks.
