Caterpillar Cuties

Students can practice building and identifying patterns with this “Caterpillar Cuties” activity.

Simply print out a sheet of caterpillar heads and give your kiddos some colored pom poms (or dip cotton balls in paint if you don’t have pom poms) and let them build a pattern!

Then, have them color in their patterns on the recording sheet to extend their learning.

Dot Patterns

All children love using bingo daubers (let’s face it… I do too!), so get out a few colors and let your students go to town with “Dot Patterns!”

Let them build their own pattern or suggest a type of pattern that they can build on each line (AB, AAB, ABC, etc.).

You could also laminate these pattern printables and let your students color them in with dry erase markers. Then you could use them year after year!

Students can use bingo daubers or crayons to build their own patterns in "Dot Patterns!"

Pattern Cards

There are over 365 pattern cards for your kiddos to explore in this set! Students will work on AB, AAB, ABB, and ABC patterns using 7 different kinds of manipulatives (Legos, beads, tangrams, links, pom poms, cubes, and bears).

Talk patterns in Circle Time and then add these cards to a center! Students will build the pattern with manipulatives and then record the pattern on the recording sheet.

Don’t have the specific manipulatives? That’s okay! Just use whatever items you have on hand that match the colors.

Pocket Chart Patterns

This Pocket Chart Patterns activity is great for Circle Time, small groups, or centers!

While working on patterns during Circle Time, call a student helper up to complete the pattern in the pocket chart.

Or have small groups of students work together to create a pattern in the pocket chart and then have another child place the matching pattern label at the front of the train (AB, ABB, ABC, etc).

These train pocket chart patterns are a great activity for circle time, small groups, or centers!
