Build your preschool or kindergarten thematic unit with these printable pattern worksheets for preschool.

How to Use the Pet Pattern Worksheets for Preschool
The pet pattern pages are simple to use.
- Print the pet pattern activity pages.
- Gather the necessary supplies: crayons, scissors, and glue.
- Show your student how to complete the pattern.
- 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.
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 pet themed printable pages, have him copy the patterns using various manipulatives.
If the pattern on the page is ABCABCABC, have your student figure it out and use her 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 a pet theme, you could use paw print stickers, or pets counters.
Finishing patterns, analyzing patterns, and creating patterns will help provide a foundation for future math skills.
