Pattern Block Symmetry Mats


I don’t know about you, but I think preschool math should involve a plethora of hands-on activities! Not only does it make the homeschool day run smoother, but students will be more engaged in the activity which is great for knowledge retention.

Young preschool students can be introduced to mathematical concepts and ideas using a variety of math manipulatives. These manipulatives don’t have to cost a fortune either! For example, counters can be made from mini-erasers, and you can make your own base-10 blocks with dried beans.

Another inexpesive product are pattern blocks. Not only do you get 250 pieces in your average set, but there are a variety of colors and shapes that can be used for a multitude of math activities.

Which, if you are looking for structured pattern block learning, we’ve specifically developed 8 different learning activities you can use with pattern block pictures in our Pattern Block Activity Bundle.

Students who have mastered basic pattern block patterns can try their hand at reflecting an image across a line of symmetry. These activity mats are a bit more difficult, and not all of your preschool students will be able to grasp this concept. However, because many students will be able to understand this important skill, it is still a great activity to include with your math learning centers.
