*Please note that this product is included in my Caterpillar and Butterfly Math Bundle for Preschool and Early Childhood . If you purchase the money-saving bundle, you DO NOT need to purchase this product.
This Caterpillar Pattern Board set includes the following:
✔ 6 ABAB caterpillar pattern boards
✔ 6 AABB caterpillar pattern boards
✔ 6 ABC caterpillar pattern boards
✔ 6 ABBA caterpillar pattern boards
✔ 3 blank caterpillar pattern boards
Within each type of pattern you will find 3 boards with caterpillars that are completely colored in and three boards with caterpillars that have some blank sections. Younger children will enjoy using the full color boards for color matching while older children can use the boards with blank sections to practice identifying and continuing the patterns. Blank boards were added so that kids can make their own patterns.
Please check out the preview file to see samples of the pattern boards.
Pom-poms, buttons, magnetic counting discs, or other manipulatives can be used to cover the patterned segments on the caterpillar bodies. If you do not have pom-poms or other items in the correct colors to use to cover the caterpillar sections, I have also included a page of color discs that can be used with the activity. The pattern board activity is fun to use on a magnetic board or cookie sheet. Simply apply magnets to pom-poms with a hot glue gun.
This product will be a great addition to your preschool, pre-k, or early intervention classroom, speech therapy sessions, toddler or preschool busy bags, or homeschool classroom.
