Help students learn, and improve their patterning skills with this winter themed activity! Included in this product are 60 winter themed pattern strips that follow an AB, ABC, AAB, or an AABB pattern, and 168 pattern strip pieces (to fill in the blank squares or for students to use when creating their own patterns.
Students will take the pattern strips and put them in a pile in front of them. They will then take one strip at a time, and determine what object comes next in the pattern. Students will then take a piece and put it over the empty space.
Differentiate by providing more advanced students with the pattern strips with an empty space in the middle of the strip (instead of at the end of the strip). Students may also use the pattern strip pieces at the end of the document to create their own patterns.
These pattern strips are meant to help students:
- recognize and continue an AB pattern
- recognize and continue an ABC pattern
- recognize and continue an AAB pattern
- recognize and continue an AABB pattern
- learn how to create their own patterns
