Pattern Block Letters and Numbers

Pattern Block Letters and Numbers

Looking for a motivating way to practice letters and numbers?! These pattern block challenges are a MUST!

The print and play cards have kids build all 26 uppercase letters, their 26 lowercase pairs PLUS the numbers 0 to 20.

Students will have so much fun that they won’t even realize they’re working on problem solving, geometry, math vocabulary… even beginning fractions!

To make it easy for you to differentiate, there are TWO versions of the activity:

-> For Pre-K or beginning Kindergarten, have students build the letters and numbers directly on the full size mats.

-> For later Kindergarten and First Grade, stretch students by giving them the mini versions of the pattern block designs so they have to look at the image and then recreate a real-life replica. They’ll practice shape recognition, of course, but they also work on their design, engineering, problem solving and scaling skills too.⁣ By adding a little extra dose of thinking, they magnify their STEM skills. ⁣

 

INSIDE YOU’LL FIND…

BEGINNING VERSION –

–> 2 versions of uppercase full size mats (in color + black and white)

–> 2 versions of lowercase full size mats (in color + black and white)

–> 2 versions of 1-10 full size mats (in color + black and white)

ADVANCED VERSION-

–> A bonus challenge asking kids to pick a number or letter and find ANOTHER way to build it.

-> The set even includes record sheets and challenge worksheets for kids who are ready for a next step.
