Online Pattern Blocks

Mrs. White's Afternoon Kindergarten

Mrs. White's afternoon kindergarten class visited the "Write Place" computer lab and made patterns using an online interactive website:

The website has links to suggested lessons using pattern blocks by Cynthia Lanius: No Matter What Shape Your Fractions Are In.

The kindergarten students learned how to place pattern blocks on the grid and rotate them. They created patterns and discovered that two triangles will cover the rhombus and six triangles will cover the hexagon. After they created their pattern they each designed a figure that has legs.
