Virtual Pentominoes

by Early Math Counts

On Monday, I wrote about pentominoes as a great manipulative for young children.  The shapes that make up a pentominoes set are always  created by combining 5 squares (pent=5).  These can then be manipulated to create larger shapes as well as.

There is a fun website connected to Blue Balliett’s book Chasing Vermeer.  Children can manipulate virtual pentominoes right on the computer screen.  Give it a try!Blue Balliett
