One wish of many preschool moms is that their dear tots would just eat more veggies.
You may not be able to get them to eat more vegetables, but you can give your student a positive experiences with healthy veggies by reading about them in good books, and by using fun printables, too.
Grab this free set of Vegetable Pattern Pages to go with one of our vegetable themed resources, or you can use them as a simple stand alone activity.
Some of the vegetables in this pattern pages set include: lettuce, tomato, mushroom, eggplant, pepper, onion, peas, broccoli, carrot, and radish.
How to Use the Vegetable Pattern Pages
The vegetable 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 vegetable pattern pages, have her copy the patterns using various manipulatives (such as carrot and celery sticks or play veggies).
If the pattern on the page is ABABABAB, have him figure it out and use his own manipulatives to recreate the same ABABABAB pattern. These activity sheets also include ABBABBABB 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.
