Pattern sets Included in the Zoo Printable Animal Theme Pattern Pack:
The Zoo Animal Theme Pattern Pack is great for differentiating math centers for learners at all stages of understanding patterns.
Your strong learners will love the challenge of the harder patterns. At the same time, students who are still learning about patterns won't be frustrated at a too difficult activity.
With 7 fully differentiated sets these pattern mats are perfect math centers for your preschool, pre-k, or prekinders classroom.
Tips for Using the Zoo Printable Patterns
If you'd rather not laminate the pattern sets, consider using a write and wipe pocket.
You can create a file folder activity with the zoo printables! Attach a pattern mat to the inside of a file folder. Use velcro dots to store the images in the folder and on the pattern mats, to complete the task.
Students can build upon their skills by progressing through the levels and patterns to continue challenging your learners!
