Cupcakes, bubble gum, donuts, and chocolate kisses–which sweet treat is your favorite?
I love them all. (Eek.) Most kids do, too, and that’s why these sweet treat pattern pages will be a hit with your students.
I don’t know anything more appealing than trying to figure out what comes next in this yummy pattern: cookie, cookie, chocolate bar . . . cookie, cookie . . . Okay, you get the idea.
How to Use the Sweet Treat Pattern Pages
The sweet treat pattern pages are simple to use.
- Print the 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 sweet treat pattern pages, have her copy the patterns using various manipulatives (such as real candy).
If the pattern on the page is ABBABBABB, have her figure it out and use her own manipulatives to recreate this. These activity sheets also include ABABABAB patterns and ABCABCABC patterns. Use your own manipulatives to experiment with various patterns.
Finishing patterns, analyzing patterns, and creating patterns will help provide a foundation for future math skills.
