I like how easily the kids acclimated to the Pattern Play game. The clear and easily explainable directions made starting the game a breeze. The color and tactile use of blocks attracted the kids to the game. I loved that this game made my students think outside the box.

Comments from other GEI teacher reviewers

“I would endorse this product. It inspired my special education students to think in a different way. They worked together to solve the puzzles. I also shared it with gifted students. They enjoyed the challenge and kept working to see how fast they could complete each picture.”

“As a first grade teacher, I found Pattern Play 3D beneficial to my student’s problem solving skills. The task cards ask students to interpret the two-dimensional images into three-dimensional structures. Each puzzle increases in difficulty. The brightly colored blocks are well made and the perfect size for classroom use. Recommend for K-2nd grade.”
