My students create patterns ALL the time.
I usually have the pieces ready to go so assembly goes smoothly.
I recently brought one of my dip trays at the dollar store
(I guess that is what you call it?)
to school for another activity.
BUT… I saw it while I was prepping centers.
AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY!
Clean up was even easier!
I highly recommend trying this the next time you make patterns with your kids.
We used this tray when we read the book
Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?
by Bill Martin Jr.
I look these Brown Bear inspired pattern pieces.
I copied them onto the correct colored copy paper and had them precut in the tray.
Check out how easy it is for the students to USE.
WHAT IS THIS TRAY THING CALLED?
