## How to make a seamless pattern in photoshop

My homeschool classroom has gained immensely from pattern blocks. They are a flexible math manipulative for low-prep learning stations, as well as being inexpensive and easy to store. Pattern block models can be used to create images, patterns, reflections, and even mandalas.
Pattern Block Mega Activity PackThis awesome Pattern Block Activity Pack has over 700 pages of tools at your fingertips. There are 230+ unique picture designs in this collection, each with three levels of difficulty.
If you’re unfamiliar with pattern blocks, they’re a series of plastic learning manipulatives that come in six different forms, each with a different color: hexagon, trapezoid, square, triangle, parallelogram, and rhombus.
Pattern block pictures are a fun activity to do for your students. This package is more than just a mat that fits. Two dice, a pencil, and a variety of pattern blocks are required.
Students begin by rolling two dice. To get the total, they add the dice values. The students then use the pattern block template to find the same number and position the appropriate shape to cover the room.

I hand-drew some Thanksgiving Mats for Pattern Blocks for my oldest when he was in Kindergarten. And, though they served their function, I’ve been working on updating them for this year’s preschooler and Kindergartner. And now I get to share them with you as well!
You’ll find 5 different mats in these FREE Thanksgiving Mats, which come in color and black/white and can be used with either plastic or wooden pattern blocks. They were a lot of fun for both of my kids to do over and over. The link to the free download is at the bottom of this article.
I did not laminate them after printing them on card stock paper. I’ve found that laminating them or even sliding them into a plastic sleeve protector makes them a little more difficult to deal with because the surface is slick and the pattern blocks travel around so quickly.
I challenged my Kindergartner to create the same pictures with our Giant Magnetic Pattern Blocks after he had completed a few mats. He adores these and did a fantastic job moving the small block picture to the larger one.

Common manipulatives for teaching reasoning, logic, planning, visual/spatial skills, geometric concepts, and other mathematical concepts include Pattern Blocks, Attribute Blocks, Tangrams, and Pentominoes. I’m often asked whether you need any of these materials and what each one’s function is. This will be a brief summary of each manipulative and its intended use; however, there are numerous support resources, such as reproducible books of worksheets and cards for each of these manipulatives, that can assist teachers in better using them for students of various ages.
Yellow hexagons, orange circles, green triangles, red trapezoids, blue parallelograms, and tan rhombuses are among the six shapes and colors available in PATTERN BLOCKS. Geometric shapes and their relationships are taught using pattern blocks. They can be used to create linear patterns that students can use to expand, duplicate, or change the given guide. They form big triangles or hexagons when put together. Because of their simplicity and usability, I think that these are the best manipulative for beginning math geometric concepts.

Green triangles, orange circles, blue parallelograms, tan rhombuses, red trapezoids, and yellow hexagons are all part of the Pattern Blocks set. Except for the trapezoid, which has one side that is twice as long, the sides of the forms are all the same length. This function allows the shapes to nest together, allowing for a diverse range of explorations. Now is the time to shop ABILITIES

Getting to Know Pattern Blocks
Green triangles, orange circles, blue parallelograms, tan rhombuses, red trapezoids, and yellow hexagons are among the 6 geometric, color-coded shapes contained in a series of Pattern Blocks. Because of the relationships between the side and angle scales, fitting the blocks together to create tiling patterns that fully cover a flat surface is a breeze. Both of the sides of the forms are 1 inch long, with the exception of the longer side of the trapezoid, which is 2 inches long, or twice as long as the other sides. Many of the shapes have angles that are divisors of 360-120°, 90°, 60°, and 30°, with the exception of the tan rhombus, which has two angles that measure 150°. However, since 150° is the sum of 90° and 60°, the 150° angles of the tan rhombus are related to the other angles.
