A ready to print, just add some wooden patterns blocks to begin using the Christmas challenge cards with a 2D shape focus.
One of our most popular printables would have to be our 2D shape challenge cards. Everyone loves pattern blocks and no classroom seems to be without a set. Many of you have written to tell us that our printable challenge cards have been the perfect addition. You've loved using them in your classrooms and how easy they make differentiation.
With Christmas only a short time away I've created some Christmas themed challenge cards to add to our pattern blocks.

Pattern blocks are a fantastic resource - perfect for exploring tessellation, symmetry, fractions, patterns and 2D shapes. Like our original 2D shape cards, our Christmas pack has three different types of cards included -
- templates for young children to match the blocks to,
- 'I can' cards that encourage children forward,
- 'Can you?' versions to prompt investigation and problem solving,
- challenge cards that provide children with only the Christmas shape to make along with the list of blocks they can use to achieve this.
These Christmas challenge cards can be used to help differentiate the same learning task across different year levels. Perfect to use as an invitation to play in the Early Years, as maths centres or even as a cross-curriculum literacy centre for early readers to help build maths language.
Created to match our existing 2D shape challenge cards, some double sized Christmas cards have also been specially created just for this download to allow for even more elaborate Christmas designs including a two different Christmas trees, a Christmas wreath, an angel and two different star patterns to match blocks to.
