Winter Patterns will help your students identify, extend, and create patterns as they begin their mastery of life-long mathematical skills. Patterning is a basic skill which is the basis of many mathematical concepts. Addition, skip counting, and times tables require understanding and proficiency in patterning. In Winter Patterns students will practice four patterns AB, AAB, ABB, and ABC in four themes – Snow Fun, Snow Day, Arctic Animals, and Winter Pals.
* 8 pages AB pattern, color and blackline * 8 pages AAB pattern, color and blackline * 8 pages ABB pattern, color and blackline * 8 pages ABC pattern, color and blackline
This resource can be presented as a file folder activity using hook and loop tape to position the strips and cards. You can either print them in color or in ink-saving gray-scale. The clarity and visual information remains sharp in gray-scale. Just print, cut, laminate, and attach hook and loop tape to the file folder.
In addition to the file folder activities, Winter Patterns includes a 16- page set of printables to practice extending patterning skills. Students can color, cut and glue winter-themed pages. These pages are variations of the file folder pages, so there are multiple opportunities to practice patterning AB, AAB, ABB, and ABC sequences.
Winter Patterns activities are a great addition to your math centers.

An experienced teacher of 30+ years, I'm pleased to be here among so many talented teacherpreneurs. For the past 12 years I have taught 3 to 5 year-olds in a Developmental Preschool classroom in an IL public school. Previously I taught general education students in grades 2, 4, 6, and 8. I've also taught students in special education classrooms (self-contained and resource) in grades K-3; 6-8; and high school.
For me, learning is all about making connections to our everyday lives. For the little ones, everything we do has a connection because the world of reading, writing, counting, computing is unfolding each and every day. For the older kids, my favorite question to answer was, "What's this got to do with my life?"
I'm a big picture sort of person by nature, but being a special education teacher has allowed me to hone my skills of task analysis. Enticing kids into stories and activities is my goal - make it fun and include movement! My job as a teacher of little ones with developmental delays permits me to be creative every day.
