This hands-on Bugs Pattern Cards will help children practice making AB, ABC, AABB, AAB, and ABB patterns.
>> Please Note: This set is included in the large BUG THEME MATH & LITERACY PACK! If you plan to purchase that pack, you DO NOT need to purchase this set. (The bundle has 20 printable activities & is sold for $8.) <<
Children will place the matching color Unifix cube (or other colored counters) onto the bugs on the mat to duplicate the patterns while learning how the pattern works. On mats with question marks, children will continue the pattern on those spaces.
I've also included blackline sheets for kids to practice making a pattern on their own. These can be used with manipulatives, bingo dot markers, or crayons.
Materials Needed: You can use Unifix cubes or other types of counters, such as flat floral marbles or colored plastic chips.
My materials are designed especially with Pre-K in mind, but will work great in Kindergarten as well.
