I had recently purchased a math manipulative kit to enhance our homeschool math play, and it included more pattern blocks. The actual shapes included in this set varied from our current set, so I wanted to find some patterns that would work for these. I found Christmas Pattern Block Mats over at Pre-Kinders at just the right time as we approach the Christmas season. I printed out a few, and laminated them back to back so we could get keep them around for awhile.
Elliott really enjoys watching the shapes form pictures. He also enjoys recreating the same, or similar patterns off the mat, as well as making his own designs.
Emory still needs a little guidance with these type of activities, but it's great for reinforcing shapes, patterns and colors!
It's also very easy to make your own pattern pages. Vicky at Mess for Less shares her Pattern Block Math Game.
