Winter Pattern Play is such a FUN learning tool! You are going to LOVE it! It is not your average pattern-teaching resource. Instead, it combines pattern identification and skills your students should be mastering (identification of phonemes–beginning and ending letter sounds & blends; one-to-one correspondence; 2-D shapes; colors and skip counting).
Your students will begin learning various patterns (AB, AAB, AABB, ABB, ABC) using the tiles and print-n-teach worksheets.
Then, you’ll combine your students’ pattern identification skills with a phonemic review.
They will listen for beginning and ending letter sounds and blends–like “ch”, “cl”, “ft”, “pr”, “rd”, “sc”, “sl”, “sn”, “st”, “sw”, “th”, and “tr”.
Winter Pattern Play includes a section all about this season’s holidays–complete with pattern and phoneme identification.
Finally, you’ll develop your students patterning skills with 2-dimensional shape identification and drawing; color patterning; one-to-one correspondence using dice and basic skip counting (by evens/2s, odds, 3s, 4s, 5s, and 10s).
Here is a sneak peak at something new we are working on–Winter Pattern Play! This isn’t your everyday pattern work. It is pattern work with a twist of word work (beginning sounds and blends), addition, shape drawing, and holidays around the world. It should be posted by the end of the week!
