Patterning is an important math concept that helps kids not only understand what comes next in mathematical challenges, but also in real-world situations. These pattern games cover AB, ABC, AAB and ABB patterns to give your child practice in this fundamental skill. For more critical concept practice, check out our collection of sorting games and other math games.
Pattern Recognition Through Fun with Shapes
Pattern recognition doesn’t need to be relegated simply to Morse code. Your students will enjoy patterns games that let them play with simple shapes and familiar animals, developing their ability to identify missing objects and suggest how to continue sequences. With access to several different patterns games for free, your students can play until they are experts at reading sequences and predicting how they will continue. Pattern recognition will help them understand more complex mathematical concepts as they progress in education. When your students have demonstrated a firm grasp of these simple patterns, let them experiment with geometry games that will stretch their understanding of shapes. If your classroom or school has desktop computers, group students together to solve these patterns games. Handheld devices such as phones and tablets will allow you to distribute pairs of students around the classroom who are busy studying by playing their way to understanding patterns.
