Free extending patterns worksheets for your preschoolers.
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.
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.
