pattern block fun
Stumbled across our bucket of pattern blocks and thought it would be fun for BamBam to make some designs with the red-white-blue shapes!
He preferred to sit and make his own designs – pumpkins, rockets, boats and his sister took a much greater interest in seeing how many different designs she could make with the same red-white-blue shapes on a round plate. This required more fine motor skills than I think a pre-K’er would have at least on a plate with curved edges. 😉
BamBam enjoyed passing certain shapes and colors to Pebbles as she puzzled with the game. Suddenly I overheard him counting the sides of the shapes in his hand – and he proclaimed ‘this is a trapezoid’ … thank you Umizoomi !!
