I love Back-to-School shopping and all the "stuff" I can find to use in my classroom (sounds reminiscent of Easter time, huh?! The reality is I'm always on the look out for things for my classroom- Halloween is coming up soon. .. . then Thanksgiving. . . you get the picture, lol!)
Today at Walmart I found this eraser:
It's about a foot long:
I also plan on using this for ta/ti-ti preparation. I have beat strips (I haven't posted about these yet, it's on my to-do list). The beat strips are long pieces of paper that have 4 beats on one side and 3 beats on the other. (Obviously the 4 beat side is for 2/4 and 4/4 songs and the 3 beat side is for 3/4 songs). Using the 4 beat side they will derive how many sounds they hear on each beat and place that many dogs in the heart. (I'll post a picture soon, I promise).
So, if you have a Walmart in your area hurry over and stock up on some "Twist It Erasers" for a fun, easily manipulative!!!
