Free Valentine Pattern Block Mats. Such a fun way to practice shapes and counting!Getting Ready

To prep, just print the free pattern block mats and, if you’ll be using them in the classroom, laminate them for extra durability and reuse. Grab a box of plastic or wooden pattern blocks like the ones below and you’re ready to play.
After kids complete the design, they’ll count the number of yellow hexagons, blue rhombuses, red trapezoids, orange squares and green triangles.  Then they’ll write the total for each on the blank lines. The extra step gives them practice counting and learning the names of shapes.
