Extending patterns activity

Here’s a fun new activity for your preschoolers – extending patterns worksheets. Children will have fun drawing 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.

Don’t miss: Dot marker patterns activity

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.

You’ll find a total of two pages in this printable set.

  1. 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.
