What are Pattern Blocks?
Pattern blocks are small wooden pieces made of either Wood or Plastic. Usually, it comes in these standard shape and colours.
- Yellow Hexagon
- Red Trapezoid
- Blue Rhombus
- White Rhombus
- Orange Square
- Green triangle
I recommend you to buy only a set that contains the mentioned colours and shapes because most of the pattern block printable activities on the internet are made as per this Standard.
We have Wooden Pattern blocks from Mellissa and Doug, and I also created this printable based on this Set.
What are the Benefits?
The Pattern blocks offer a variety of learning opportunities for young kids.
It helps kids get familiar with shapes And develops spatial skills, Problem-solving skills, Fine motor skills, visual discrimination skills, and so on.
What included in Summer Pattern block mats?
This free printable includes the following Summer theme Pattern block drawings.
Each page also has an additional counting activity; Where the child can count the number of each type of pattern block used and write.
The pages can be printed and used as it is for single use. This is a no-prep activity.
However, if you use them in a classroom setup, you can laminate them for multiple usages.
I wanted to share an easy way to skip lamination (For home use). Just add a transparent tape to the bottom counting block. Now you can write with wipe erase markers and wipe them off.
How easy! Isn’t it?
How to use these Mats?
Place the blocks in a container, give them one of these mats and ask them to start building.
The child recognises the shapes and places the pattern blocks directly on the mat. Older kids can also recreate it on a table using this mat as a visual guide.
Once the pattern is made, you can ask them to count the blocks and write the number in the bottom block. This helps them with their counting skills too!
It is an amazing way to work on various early learning skills.
My daughter made these patterns (image below). To my surprise, She completed 6 out of 7 without any help.
