I know it’s only September, but Halloween will be here before we know it. If you’re a planner (like me!) then here’s a great printable you can download now in preparation for your Halloween-themed lessons.
These Halloween pattern strips are an easy and fun way to practice creating patterns with preschoolers. The printable for this is found at the bottom of this post.
After downloading, print on cardstock and laminate for durability. Then just cut each strip apart. You can choose to punch a hole on the side and secure them together on a ring. Set out Unifix cubes for your students, and have them practice making patterns using the colors on the strips.
The Halloween pictures on the strips just make it fun for kids! If you don’t have Unifix cubes, you can also use Lego bricks or another math manipulative with the same colors.
It’s pretty simple! You could use these for individual practice in a math center or with a group of students.
