Summer Pattern Block Mats
Summer Pattern Block Mats are such a fun way to practice shapes, estimating, and more during the summer season! What an easy way to practice a few skills during the months off from formal academics.
This set of pattern block mats comes in 2 levels, appropriate for 1st-4th grades. Of course, children that are younger or older than this age range would enjoy them also.
The outline of each individual block shape is given in the Level 1 set. After placing blocks in the correct spaces, students write the number of blocks used in the table.
Only the outline of the image is given in this set. The number of each block is provided, and students must figure out the correct placement inside the shape.

— a colored visual guide

— 10 Level 2 Pattern Block Mats
