Learning about math patterns can be fun and challenging at the same time. They are all around us – patters we can see, hear, and create on our own! We love building patterns with loose parts, and I am always on the lookout for ways I can incorporate patterns into our learning (even though it isn’t technically in our standards – they are still important!) This spring tulips math patterns printable lets my kids build up their fine motor skills through coloring, while working on AB, ABC, AAB, and ABB patterns.
Spring Tulips Math Patterns
This spring tulip math patterns printable is great for math bins during math workshop, small groups, whole group, or even as a morning entry task.
All you need are copies of the printable (at the end of the post) and crayons – that’s it!
My kids LOVE to color, and these tulips require enough concentration and fine motor work to get those finger muscles working!
They look at the letters on the left side to determine what type of pattern they are going to color in the row.
The first was an AB pattern, so they colored purple, pink, purple, pink, and continued on down the row.
Next up was ABC, followed by AAB and finally ABB. They created the given patterns with their crayons until all of the tulips were colored.
This is such a fun and colorful (and simple!) way to work on patterns, and if your kids are anything like mine, they will enjoy the ability to choose their own colors of tulips!
