HFW Pattern Blocks

Mrs. Thiessen at "The First Grade Sweet Life" posted about some cool reading stations for Vocabulary Words using pattern block bingo boards.  She got the boards from in the pattern block section.  Unfortunately, prekinders does not allow me to share the boards I created using their graphics....but the good news is they're really easy to create... the pattern block graphic you want to use.  You can save it on your desktop or in your iPhotos.  Next, open a new power point file and select a blank slide template.  Now import your picture and pull and drag it to make it the same size as the slide.  Last, create text boxes and add the words you would like to the areas on the graphic.  Easy Peasy pattern block boards.
