Free Goldfish Pattern Printable
This is the ultimate hands-on learning pack! I know my kiddos are a zillion times more engaged when they actually get to EAT their math lesson. Patterns are something that you’ll want to cover as part of your preschool math program. And, with these cute little fish crackers, your kids can have fun creating patterns and then eat the fish afterward! This free pattern pack includes 20 different pattern strips, making them a simple activity for at home or in the classroom. This is a great activity for when you need to keep your little children busy learning.
Interactive Pattern Sheet
This pack includes 4 sheets of 5 pattern strips. Each one of the 20 pattern strips has a unique pattern with different colors. Patterns follow the AB, ABB, AAB, and ABC patterns. You might find that your kiddos will end up creating their own patterns!
Pattern Game Assembly
All that is needed for the assembly part of this pattern game is to print the pages! Actually, if you want this set to last, say for your next kiddo, you might want to laminate the pattern cards for durability. That way, little cracker crumbs and sticky finger marks can easily be wiped off. After laminating, cut apart each strip and then get yourself some of the rainbow colored goldfish crackers.
Goldfish Cracker Pattern Game:
Once you have everything set up, have your preschooler pick out a pattern to replicate. After he/she is done, continue picking out different patterns until your child has completed them all. As your child masters the patterns, point out the name of the pattern and see if they can point and say which letter each fish represents as you go across the pattern. This might be too difficult at the start but work your way up to help your child reach this level of understanding patterns.
These Fish Cracker Patterns are perfect for a Busy Bag. Because there are not very many pieces to this printable you can just put the pattern strips into a sandwich bag and pull them out when your preschooler needs something to do.
how f n!
It looks so fun for kids to learn patterns during small group time!
