Free Conversation Heart Pattern Strips! What a fun pattern activity for Valentine's Day. These would be perfect for a Valentine's party or math center.

Getting Ready

To prep, I printed the pattern strips on cardstock to give them extra durability and make the colors really pop. (I’m always surprised by what a difference it makes!)

Then I grabbed our scissors and cut along the dotted lines to separate the strips.

My kids are going to LOVE these colorful conversation heart pattern strips!!

Note: If you’ll be using the printables in a classroom, you may want to laminate the strips for extra durability.

Making Patterns

When I was all set, I invited Middle Brother over to join me.

I gave him a simple AB pattern to try first. We said the colors out loud to help him quickly identify the pattern, “orange – green – something – green – orange…”

I love these free conversation heart pattern strips!

Middle Brother immediately grabbed an orange conversation heart and slid it into the first blank circle. Then he grabbed two green conversation hearts and slid them into the other empty spots.

We started at the beginning of the pattern strip and read the colors again to check his answer, “orange – green – orange – green – orange…” It matched up perfectly!

More Patterns

I wanted Middle Brother to practice a variety of patterns so I included plenty of different types in the set: AAB, ABB, ABC, ABCD… even ABCDE patterns! There’s something for kids of all abilities making it great to use for differentiating math instruction.
