This pack includes printables for teaching about 2D shapes and composing pictures and letters out of shapes. BONUS! Help students practice those uppercase and lowercase letters by creating them out of shapes. This is a great way to integrate letter identification and letter sound practice into math time.
These task cards fit 4 to a page and range from easy to challenging.
This pack has 52 different Color task cards for students to use in creating composite shapes with pattern blocks and those same 52 are included in black & white as well. There are 26 color task cards that have just the capital and lower case letters and then another 26 that have a letter and a picture- such as C is for Cat. Again, the cards are available in both color and black & white.
Some of the composite task cards included are:
- A is for Alligator
- H is for House
- M is for Mountains
- P is for Pineapple
- Q is for Questions
- X is for "X marks the Spot"
- Z is for Zipper
AND SO MUCH MORE!!!
This pack also includes 2 picture mats for students to place their pattern blocks on- the mat comes in color and in black and white. Students get SO engaged using these task cards.This activity can be used for small group, whole group, early finishers or as a math center.
Please note that these are task cards which means they are not big enough for students to lay the actual blocks on top of them to build the composite shapes. This is an AMAZING way to get students to practice visualizing and conceptualizing in their heads!
I print the cards on cardstock and laminate for some common core aligned, hands-on learning!! I also laminated the picture mats so students could use dry erase markers to write the number of shapes they used!
