Benefits of Playing with Patterns

Patterns help preschool and kindergarten students to use their short term memories and to analyze data. Once your student can master these bug themed printable pages, have her copy the patterns using various manipulatives.

If the pattern on the page is ABCABCABC, have your student figure it out and use his own manipulatives to recreate the same ABCABCABC pattern. These activity sheets also include ABBABBABB patterns and ABABABAB patterns. Use your own manipulatives to experiment with various patterns.

If you want to stick to an insect theme, you could use plastic bugs or insect stickers.

Finishing patterns, analyzing patterns, and creating patterns will help provide a foundation for future math skills.

What’s Included in the Insect Pattern Worksheets?

This set of free pattern worksheets include three pages of different pattern activities for your preschool student to complete.

Some of the objects in this pattern pages set include: bee, caterpillar, butterfly, beetle, ladybug, and dragonfly.

How to Use the Insect Pattern Worksheets

The insect pattern pages are simple to use.

  1. Print the pattern activity pages.
  2. Gather the necessary supplies: crayons, scissors, and glue.
  3. Show your student how to complete the pattern.
  4. Let your student go for it!

Note: Not all students will want to color the images, and that’s okay. We want this to be fun, not a chore. However, coloring the images in a pattern can be part of the pattern learning process. If you have a student who is reluctant to color, consider taking turns and using it as part of the pattern learning process.
