To review patterns and shapes, we read Pattern Fish by Trudy Harris and then the students created their own pattern fish. Fellow teachers, I received this particular pattern fish template from a former teammate but you can find similar patterns at PreKinders. The students had to find two different ways to fill in the pattern fish with foam pattern blocks and then they had to choose their favorite one to create with paper pattern blocks. The students then counted and graphed how many of each type of pattern block they used. The students compared the various different ways the fish could be filled using pattern blocks.
