This set of worksheets will provide your students with practice in recognizing patterns involving shapes and also how find which shapes are missing from a given pattern.
The first worksheet will show a group of shapes in a line and the student will have to determine by looking at the group of shapes whether or not it is a pattern and then circle yes or no.
The second worksheet will have a line of shapes in a patterns and the students will write down on the line below the shapes what the next three shapes in the pattern are.
The third worksheet will have a line of shapes in a pattern but there will be some black spaces in the pattern where a shape is supposed to be. The students will draw in these spaces which shape should be in that particular spot in the pattern.
When working with the students on finding and completing patterns, the teacher can guide the students through determining whether a pattern is there or how to complete the pattern by advising the students to look over the groups of shapes slowly and possibly use scrap paper for jotting down notes before filling in spaces or line beneath the groups of patterns.
Included with these worksheets are corresponding answer sheets.
