## Overview

Attribute Blocks are manipulatives that have four different attributes: shape (circle, hexagon, square, and triangle); color (red, blue, and yellow); size (big and small); and thickness (thick and thin). The activities in this book give young students practice with sequences or following a pattern using the objects and attributes that are given. These easy-to-use cards are the perfect introduction to logical thinking for young learners. Students use attribute blocks to complete the patterns on the 32 full-color task cards, determining which block has the correct attributes to complete the sequence. Each set progresses from easy to more difficult. The cards build a student�s ability to analyze characteristics of the blocks, identify a pattern, and extend the pattern. These are perfect for learning centers and nonreaders. Use attribute blocks in your math class or as a part of your thinking skills program. If you are looking for a motivating, hands-on way to introduce your younger students to logical thinking, this book and its counterpart, Attribute Block - Analogies: Thinking Activities are just what you need. Simply put out the cards and a set of attribute blocks and let the thinking begin!
