Free Cricut Pattern Blocks
If you are like me, you were forced to do virtual learning with your kids at home. We were doing Go Math worksheets on our own so that we didn’t have to dig out a million different Google Classroom videos. What we found out is that having hands on shapes were much better than trying to only draw the divisions in the shapes. We even created a great Cricut Clock that we shared that taught my daughter how to tell time in just a day!
If you are a teacher and you haven’t ever purchased a Cricut, I created the MUST-have starting Cricut accessories list. You will want to have this list when you are getting started! Check it out prior to purchasing your first machine! Also, we would suggest that you purchase straight from the Cricut website while their prices are the best you can find.
Drawing is great too but when you are learning the concept you should start off by understanding it first and then add in those motor skills of drawing them out. My disclosure is that I am not a 1st grade teacher but I am a teacher. So the simple scaled level of learning comes naturally to me.

Here is what you will need to create the Pattern Block Shapes for Cricut.
Pattern Blocks Worksheet (below)
- You will want to print our Pattern Blocks Worksheet. The shapes just be about 2 inches in width. When you use our Cricut file just confirm by measuring the hexagon on your Cricut sheet and you can edit and resize them all by selecting them all and resizing them at once. Here is our file that you can use as long as you have a Cricut machine. That way all your shapes will fit our attached worksheet.
- Each different shape should print with a different color. If you are using Go Math we have extra hidden shapes that are on the next unit that you might find useful to unhide and cut and use.
- Place all your individual shapes in baggies to create a classroom set. Each file is only one set.
Pattern Blocks Worksheet
Use this PDF of our worksheet we created. Use these awesome dry erase reusable pockets so that they can be reused multiple times and after they are done playing with shapes they can try to use a dry erase marker to draw their pattern blocks in the shapes!
