Monday Math Freebie - Pattern Block Builder

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
This week I'm sharing an assortment of activities with pattern blocks. using a game board, students roll dice and take different numbers of blocks depending on where they land and the number they roll. Once they reach the finish they build a shape from their pieces. Then they answer some questions using their pattern blocks.

You'll find two different worksheets in this packet. One focuses on basic counting, graphing, and coin counting skills. The other focuses on fractions and symmetry.

Here's a sneak peak at the contents.
