Kindergarten and first grade students can practice their counting skills and knowledge of shapes and they use this template to make a pattern block shamrock. After they construct their shamrocks, they count and record how many of each shape they used. A great math lesson for St. Patrick's Day!
Can't wait to use these in March. My kiddos love using pattern blocks. Now they are starting to create their own pictures using the blocks and then asking a friend to count each type of block they used in their picture. Thanks for starting the craze.

My students love these templates. We do a new one each month to hang on the wall. Thanks!
