Chug-chug! Beep! Zoom! It’s time for Transportation Patterns for Preschool.
Grab this free set of transportation pattern worksheets to go with one of our other transportation themed resources, or you can use them as a simple stand-alone activity.
Some of the objects in this pattern pages set include: car, stoplight, stop sign, hot air balloon, speedometer, airplane, train, boat, truck, tire, and traffic cone.
How to Use the Transportation Patterns for Preschool
The transportation pattern pages are simple to use.
- Print the transportation 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 transportation 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 a transportation theme, you could use toy cars, trains, and airplanes. Additionally, you could get a set of learning counters and pattern the vehicles by color or type.
Finishing patterns, analyzing patterns, and creating patterns will help provide a foundation for future math skills.
