What educators are saying

I used these as a beginning of the year activity to introduce pattern blocks to my first graders. These were perfect because they match my under the sea theme!
My students love using these as an extra activity and during our Geometry unit! The ocean animals are so perfect and engaging! Thank you!


Using pattern blocks in the classroom is a good way to foster spacial skills and critical thinking. Plus, you will be covering several of the Common Core Math Standards for kindergarten and first grade {K.G.A.2, K.G.A.3, K.G.B.6, 1.G.A.2, 1.G.A.3}

This set comes with 10 different ocean animals at four levels of difficulty. Click the green "Look Inside" button above for more information. You print out the set that fits your class, laminate them and they are ready to use year after year. There are also 3 recording sheets, a pattern block poster and tips for the teacher.

Animals included are:
-hermit crab
Actual pattern block pieces are not included.

This set is also included in this bundle:

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).
Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
