Does Pattern Block Work Help with Critical Thinking Skills?
Yes, they do! Using the pattern blocks to create other shapes encourage kids to critically think about what fits and what does not fit, which shapes work together to build bigger creations, etc.
These pattern block mats include handwriting practice for kids. Each page has a place for them to trace the name of the animal that is on the printable.
Each page also includes some simple addition work, asking students to count how many of each pattern block is used and to then add up the total number of pattern block pieces used for each template.
Learning activities like pattern blocks are great for small groups or for individual learning.
