Children choose a partner and take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number they roll will be the matching numbered pattern block that they will stack. A second roll tells them how many of that pattern block they need to stack. If they knock over their stack, the spilled pieces go back in the pile; any that are still in a stack can stay.
Five pattern block games are included in this packet that will help review shapes, colors, numbers and simple addition.
This packet includes colorful alphabet cards, a matching anchor chart alphabet poster an alphabet bookmark, plus a tip list of lots of things you can do with the cards, including games like Kaboom.
There are lots of things you can do with these large letters: Use them as anchor charts, flashcards, Play-doh mats, or run them off on a variety of colors of construction paper; laminate and cut them out to make a border, or have them going up a large Chicka Boom tree.
Run these off on the appropriate colors; laminate and trim. Use these as flashcards, a pattern block bulletin board, or give the giant pattern block pieces to students to use with, or as an alternative to, the wooden pattern blocks.
The hexagon is often a "toughie" shape for students to learn. A fun way to give them more practice with hexagons, is with pattern blocks. Have them count them, stack them, pattern with them etc. As they are playing with the pattern blocks, challenge them to use the variousl pieces to see how many ways they can make the hexagon shape.
