Digital Pattern Block Mats for the Seasons

$6.00

Instant Digital Download!

This resource works on so many great technology skills. While students may be familiar with using pattern blocks to make designs, it brings the skill to a whole new level to do it digitally. Each slide has only 1 of each pattern block. This means students need to manipulate the pattern blocks in order to fit them over the design on the mat.

No Stress Ordering:

  • Nearly everything here is an instant digital download, which means you can download the files as soon as your order is placed. 
  • You’ll also receive an email with the download link(s) so that you can access them anywhere.
  • There are also some courses and subscriptions that come with both digital downloads and virtual content hosted on my webpages. All of the access information will be provided to you. 

Description

This resource works on so many great technology skills. While students may be familiar with using pattern blocks to make designs, it brings the skill to a whole new level to do it digitally. Each slide has only 1 of each pattern block. This means students need to manipulate the pattern blocks in order to fit them over the design on the mat.

The first 6 slides walk students through using the handles to move and rotate the shapes as well as 2 options for copying and pasting the shapes to make as many as needed for the designs.

If this is their first experience with the skills, I recommend talking through the first 6 slides together and even demonstrating the first design in all 3 levels as a whole group.

There are 3 levels of each design, for a total of 30 slides of practice per Season. That means 120 total activity slides! Students will need a lot of time to complete all of them. I recommend starting it as a lesson and then keeping the activity on hand for a sub or for early finishers.

Skills addressed:

•Navigating to file

•Rotating shapes

•Moving shapes

•Copy and paste shapes 2 different ways

•Typing
