Pattern Card and Counting Templates


**I do NOT recommend allowing your tot to use any of these items unsupervised.**

I have had a few requests for the files to my pattern cards. I thought I would go ahead and upload them, just in case anyone else was interested. Simply click the pictures to download the files.

This first file is our basic counting 1-5 sheet. I designed it to be used with our Dollar Tree erasers, but any number of objects would work.

Here are the files for my pattern cards. I made these specifically for the musical note erasers I found at the Dollar Tree, but since some of you have told me that you have the same erasers, I thought you might find them useful. You can choose between the color or the black & white version.

I have also uploaded a blank pattern template. Feel free to use this to make your own or to set up examples for your tot to follow with actual objects.

I also decided to upload our counting cards. These circles were designed to fit a pack of poker chips that came in a multi-game set. Again, any objects can be substitued for the poker chips. The pdf file includes numbers 1-10.

Finally, I have provided several of my pattern templates for the Connect Four game. There is even a blank template for coloring if you need it at the end of the file.
