Pattern Recognition for Preschoolers - Easter Color By Pattern

Pattern Recognition for Preschoolers - Easter Color By Pattern

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I am obsessed with pattern recognition for preschoolers. Patterns are an essential pre-skill for math and reading instruction. Math and literacy are based on pattern recognition. Every math formula is a pattern and the literacy rules sounding out words, writing sentences, writing paragraphs etc are all based on patterns.
All of this is to say that I find pattern recognition to be pretty darn important. And I focus on it a lot with my kiddos.
So I have created a freebie for you all to use with your kiddos highlighting pattern recognition.

Focus Skills


  • Create simple A-B-C or A-B-B repeating patterns
