TIPS:
**Copy Pentomino Template on cardstock and laminate. Students can then carefully cut out shapes to use in solving letter puzzles. (Plastic pentomino sets can be purchased online through most school specialty stores. These sets are worth the investment for multiple uses!)
**Copy Pentomino Puzzle activity sheets onto cardstock and laminate to reuse or copy onto paper and mat with construction paper before laminating.
