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…
–> 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)
–> 2 versions of uppercase letter task cards (in color + black and white)
–> 2 versions of lowercase letter task cards (in color + black and white)
–> 2 versions of 0-20 number task cards (in color + black and white)
–> Record sheets
–> 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.
“My TK and kindergarten students will love to use pattern blocks while also learning their uppercase and lowercase recognition. Especially because they find pattern blocks very interesting and fun at this age! Thank you so much for this resource!” – Hailee C.
“I love these! Not only do they help students with letter ID they also can be used to intro the names of shapes. Plus making the puzzle uses fine motor skills as well.” – ZNeeley
“Love pattern block and the visual/spatial learning that they bring in a fun way! Playdough to Plato is my go-to site for quality materials and higher level thinking skills. Kudos!” – Deborah C.
“My students love using pattern blocks. This resource was quick and easy to make and it is an activity that the students can use independently.” – Kenda Mitchum
“My students loved these! I printed and laminated and used for an independent center at math time. Students were engaged and didn’t want to switch!” – Francy Mull
“Great resource for my special education classroom!” Kim G.
