The Pattern Block Activity Bundle from Crafty Classroom is a great addition to your homeschool! It gives you a no-prep activity for morning time or anytime that will keep your kids engaged and learning.
What Comes in the Pattern Block Activity Bundle
This activity bundle is a PDF digital download. So you can save it to your computer and just print out the pages as needed.
Here’s what you can expect:
- over 700 pages
- 230+ unique picture designs – letters, numbers, animals, etc!
- 3 levels of difficulty
- 8 universal activity pages – graphing, inequalities, ordinal numbers, etc!
Here is a list of the content covered in the picture designs:
This activity pack gives some structured play and math practice to your kids as well as great practice with fine motor skills and spatial reasoning.
I knew my five year old would enjoy working with these activity pages and pattern blocks, especially during the summer when kids are regularly bored.
I didn’t already own the pattern blocks, but easily found them on HERE.
My daughter practiced making the pictures on her own. You can pick the level of difficulty your child needs, as each picture has three options.
Here’s what the activity pages look like. After your child creates their own design with the pattern blocks, these pages extend the learning to different writing or math activities that are perfect for K-2.
The math skills included in the activity pages are:
- tally marks
- ordinal numbers
- shape identification
- number words
The activity pages encourage creative writing to extend language skills practice. After your child creates a design with the blocks, they draw a picture of the design, then write about it.
How You Can Use It
- print mats & put in page protectors in a 3-ring binder
- print on card stock in smaller sizes and connect with a ring
This resource is perfect for homeschool families! Here are a few ways you can use it in your homeschool:
- keep toddlers busy while you work with older siblings
- give all your kids the same picture to work on, but with differing levels of difficulty
- use as an extended activity for math practice
- use in language arts to create a picture then write a story to go along with it
- use it to break out of the rut when you’re in a homeschool slump
- use it on the days when your kids need to do something educational, but you don’t have it in you to do a “normal school day”
I do think this is a great resource to have in your home! But don’t take my word for it. Check out the other CREW reviews about this and other resources from Crafty Classroom.
