What Is Next Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a pattern recognition and completion activity that focuses on shapes. It presents rows of alternating shapes, including stars and circles, with a missing shape at the end of each sequence. Below the sequences, there are shapes within dashed lines intended for cutting out. The students are instructed to cut the correct shapes and paste them into the blank spaces to complete the pattern.

The worksheet teaches students to recognize and continue patterns, an important skill in both math and literacy. It encourages analytical thinking as students must determine which shape comes next in the given sequence. The cut-and-paste aspect of the activity is designed to develop fine motor skills, useful for handwriting and other precise tasks. Additionally, this exercise helps reinforce shape recognition, a foundational geometry concept.
