This year my goal is to move towards have a centers-based classroom approach where kids are doing more application of what they are learning after some direct or whole-class instruction. Basically, I wanted to provide more differentiation for my students. (Ooo! An educational buzz-word! I feel so smart and "teachery!") Over the summer I began collecting items that I thought would work well for a centers activity. These cupcakes were one of those items.
It's a very simple activity. Match the name of the note with the picture of the note. Done! I made 4 sets with the stack that I purchased from Lakeshore Learning. Here is what one set looks like:
So, I wrote the name of the note on the top and drew the symbol on the bottom. I then cut them apart and laminated them (for longevity!). Here's what it looks like cut apart:
ALSO...I thought that this could work well as a tool for an assessment. (Which might be nice for special ed students as a way of identifying the term with the symbol with manipulatives vs. writing.)
I'm excited for the kiddos to use them!
