Pentominoes, like dominoes, have many uses in the mathematics classroom. A pentomino is simply a geometric shape that has been formed by placing five congruent squares adjacent to each other. The squares must connect on at least one side and there can be no corner or partial side.
Included in this 33 page packet are several activities and investigations for primary students through secondary students. Blackline masters for pentomino letter charts as well as pentomino letters to fit the 100 chart for printing on 11” X 17” paper for the number chart investigations are included. Resources with links are also embedded.
This resource is great for students with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.
