Fall is just around the corner and I know teachers are already planning fun activities for fall. A great way to work on fine motor skills, shapes, and visual discrimination skills is with these fall pattern block printables!
What Are Pattern Blocks?
Pattern blocks teach children about shapes and is a tool for developing visual discrimination skills. Visual discrimination skills is being able to see differences between objects or pictures, even subtle differences. For the fall pattern block printables I’m sharing today, students will need to determine which of these 6 shapes they will use to fill in the template.
Pattern Block Pages for Fall
This printable include pattern block templates for the following:
- oak leaf
- corn cob
The printable includes color pages, where the student matches the shapes.
It also includes black and white pages, where students fill in the shape with pattern blocks. This is more challenging!
How to Use Pattern Block Pages
For the activity, give the student one of the fall picture pagess and some pattern blocks. See if they can fill it in with the shapes! It looks so colorful when it’s filled in!
Also have the students write how many pattern blocks they used in the table at the bottom of the page.
Pattern block activities are wonderful for working on fine motor skills. If this is too difficult for the child to do or the child gets frustrated with the pieces moving, you can tape the paper to a white board and use magnetic pattern blocks to fill in the template.
