Pattern blocks have always been an integral part of my classroom! They are so hands-on, developmentally appropriate and good for the little growing brain!

They provide rich exposure to lots of skills such as shape recognition, patterning, sorting, matching, problem solving, fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination,

differentiation, flexible thinking, and so much more!. Pattern Block Work & Play Card Kits are perfect for using during each season/theme for

an independent activity, small groups ,or centers! Students can practice matching the shapes to fill the card, or play using the included dice,

game cards or spinner versions. Using thegame elements makes for such a great partner activity to use for centers, math stations, even morning work!

They LOVE it! To add an extra element of challenge you can require them to name the shape the drew, rolled, or spun!

Perfect for using with:

• Instruction

• Literacy Centers

• Math Centers

• Math Stations

• Small Groups

• Sensory Play

• Self regulated work & play

• Fine motor, busy box, or morning work activities

A word about prep. . . I print my cards on heavy card stock…I rarely laminate! I just reprint as needed, especially since I change

these out seasonally or with new themes.
