- *Attribute Sorting Picture Sets
- *Patterning Baseboards
- *Pattern Cards
- *Sorting / Grouping
- 12 different attribute categories
- 3 different types in each category
- 3 different colours
- 3 different sizes
- Attribute sorting labels
- Ideal for grouping and sorting by different attributes…
Patterning / Sequencing

How to use this teaching resource
- FOR SORTING AND GROUPING – I would print out and laminate as many of these categories as you would like and throw them all into a tub. Children can then sort, group, classify the pictures as per your lesson planning (see below for ideas)
- FOR PATTERNING – Please note: for some of the patterning activities, you will need about 5-10 x copies of each set of category pictures to keep the repetition going. Pop each category pictures x 5-10 and pattern strips into ziplock bags to have ready-to-go patterning.
SORTING / GROUPING ACTIVITIES…..
- Use baskets, hoops on the floor or the baseboards and the attribute labels for children to sort / group into specific attributes – easiest is sorting by one attribute – – eg, all red, all insects, all medium.
- Make this more difficult by grouping / sorting by more than one attribute using more than one label per group eg. all medium / red pictures , all large/yellow/transport and shapes.
- Intersect the hoops to show shared attributes eg one hoop is labelled ”Red” , one hoop is labelled ”Insects” the intersecting parts is then all red insects.
- Children are given a group of random pictures. Taking turns, each child puts down a picture which has ONLY ONE DIFFERENT ATTRIBUTE to the last picture placed. For example – a small blue dolphin in placed down – the next picture could be a small blue strawberry – next picture could be a medium blue strawberry – next a medium blue bike – next a large blue bike (a little bit like UNO)
- Have baskets ready for them to play, sort and group the pictures however they would like.
PATTERN CARD AND BASEBOARD ACTIVITIES – Pop the category pictures x 5-10 and pattern strips into a ziplock bag to have ready-to-go patterning.
- The patterning baseboards are fun to use – they are very big though so will need lots of room – great on the floor.
- Spread them out on the floor and let children create their own patterns using the attribute pictures.
- Pop the pattern reference card above the baseboard – children use this as a reference to copy the pattern using the attribute pictures and baseboard (Please note: when using the pattern reference cards – you will need 5-10 x copies of each category picture to keep the repetition going )
- Barrier game – pop some sort of barrier between 2 children eg. a standing folder, book etc. One child uses the pictures to set up a pattern on their baseboard – they then have to ”describe” or ”explain” to their partner the pattern they have made – eg. first put on a medium red strawberry, then place a blue small plane etc etc….their partner then makes the pattern on their side from their partner’s description.
PLEASE SHARE IN COMMENTS BELOW – HOW THE INSECT PATTERN CARDS IN PARTICULAR WORKED FOR YOU – IF THEY WORKED WELL – WE WILL MAKE UP PATTERN CARDS FOR SOME OF THE OTHER CATEGORIES…. THANKS
