The Crafty Classroom: Pattern Block Activity Bundle ~ a TOS review

Happy Friday friends! Today I have the opportunity to share a fantastic bundle called the Pattern Block Activity Bundle from the Crafty Classroom! If you are looking for a great Kindergarten and up activity then definitely keep reading.



I really enjoy the younger years of learning when little learners eyes fill with wonder when they experience something for the first time. It may seem like a simple task or puzzle to us as adults but to them it is truly amazing and awesome. My son, Micah (5), loves hands-on learning. For the past few weeks his has been working his way through the Pattern Block Activity Bundle.


The Crafty Classroom is the brainchild of Valerie McClintick who produces top quality educational resources for math, reading, science, alphabet, Bible, writing, and more! All of her products are priced affordably so you are not going to break the bank getting quality curriculum material. We received a digital download PDF of the curriculum designed for children in preschool to grade 3 that includes hundreds of hands-on learning.


The product is divided into 5 categories including: 
 ~ ABC & 123 
~ Animal Bundle 
~ Holiday Bundle 
 ~ Four Seasons 
~ Transportation 


With over 700+ pages, this bundle is choke full of illustrated full color activities. The entire set is differentiated and includes 3 levels of skill for each category. Plus, you have 8 bonus activity pages that cover counting, tally marks, graphing, addition, subtration, writing, shape identification, inequalities, ordinal numbers, number words, and sequencing. For just $25.00 you get a lot of bang for your buck! And don’t fret if printing in color gives you the willies, there are black and white options too.




Micah loves this set! I love it that instead of buying sets here and there we have so many options. To help organize the bundle I printed out each sections pages at the medium level. I further put each page inside a sheet protector so that he could write on the bottom when counting the shapes and easily erase as well. I then stored them in 1” binders.


With this set up Micah is able to grab a binder and work through whichever set he choses. He typically spent 30+ minutes working on different pages 2-3 days a week. I did not use the bonus pages just yet as the writing is above his level for now. However, I look forward to using these pages when he gets a little more advanced in writing.


 In his words… “this is the best”!
