“Such a great resource! The students love expressing creativity, and these pattern blocks were exactly what I was looking for. I’ve used them plenty of times and will continue to do so!” – Sara Reichold
“This was the perfect challenge for my 1st grader while learning about shapes. We used the hexagon and triangle activities first (finding as many different ways to make the shapes as possible), then the card set where she had options for creativity and then practiced recording her data in a chart. She has enjoyed the level of challenge with the activities.” – Simone N.
“I was excited to add this resource to my STEM bins because it utilizes familiar math manipulatives that my students don’t typically associate with the STEM process. This set of activities was engaging and helped build important skills.” – Christy M.
“My first graders did this with their 5th grade study buddy partners, and all students (1st and 5th graders) were engaged for 40 minutes! They LOVED all of the activities!” – Angie A.
“My students love using pattern blocks. This resource adds a variety of activities to the ones included in my math curriculum. Great for reinforcing geometry skills and imagination!” – Toni H.
“Fun activity that I was able to use across different grade levels for a stem night!” – Mrs. Kelly Teaching Young Minds
