These pattern making cards are ideal for math centers/centres or rotations in your classroom. Perfect for first-grade math students, these cards will help build your student's confidence in patterning and math problem-solving.


Easy to set up, just place the hippos (these were from Kmart) near the cards and let students try to continue the pattern or find the missing piece of the pattern. Place students in pairs and let them check their work by looking at the back of each card for the answer. All cards have been colour coded to assist with classroom differentiation and abilities. Includes UK and US spellings. Also has printable hippos if you don't have access to math manipulatives.
