Free extending patterns worksheets for your preschoolers.
Here’s a fun new activity for your preschoolers – extending patterns worksheets.
Children will have fun drawing simple pictures while building their visual discrimination and pre-reading skills.
Picture patterns worksheets
This is not your typical patterning exercise to practice basic patterns.
Instead, children will learn to extend simple picture patterns exercising their visual discrimination, memory, and fine motor skills.
This is an important skill for future reading, math, and writing success.
Just like letters sit in a certain order to make a word, children need to observe and respect the order for them to become successful readers.
For instance, words like canoe – ocean, lean-lane, ring-grin, etc. have all the same letters simply placed in a different order (thus with different meanings).
And the same goes for numbers, too! Numbers 12 and 21 are totally different, right?
To help children become good readers and thinkers, starting early with activities like patterning and sequencing is the best we can do for them.
Printable PDF pattern worksheets
You’ll find a total of two pages in this printable set.
On the first page, children will draw simple pictures while extending the patterns.
The second page contains more abstract images, so save this for later if it’s too difficult for your child at this time.
Feel free to use these worksheets in your preschool or kindergarten class or for fun pre-reading activity at home.

Thank you very much, I found myself at homeschooling and your site has been very helpful
Love your worksheets!! These have been so much help during our stay at home impromptu preschool! Thank you!!
I love this set! My son hates to cut and paste and the ones where you “choose the single” next item for the pattern are a bit too easy for him – making him draw them in is a great “new” way for us to pattern. Thank you also for making all of the worksheets I’ve found black/white only – makes them easy for me to print back to back and doesn’t use up a lot of expensive color ink.
Thank you for your comments, Vicky. I am glad you like my worksheets and the idea of keeping them b&w! I do it exactly for that reason – to save on ink 😉 all the best to you and your family!
I am clicking every link with a smile on my face and confidence knowing that each link is taking me to a new idea and posibilitis my son could be enjoying and learning from. This is becoming redundant but, thank you again!
thank you so much for your generosity! it shows how much you love kids and let them have fun in learning. may God bless you more 🙂
thank you very much
