More Erasers. . . This Time Puzzles!

If you saw yesterday's post it was about some erasers that I found for staff reading.  Now, here's some for rhythm reading.

Today's erasers are brought to you by Walgreens! :)  These erasers were 99 cents for 18 puzzle piece erasers and the container looks like this:
 Here's another shot:

Here's what I made with them (this is the tika-ti version):

I was able to write two rhythms on each eraser: one on each side.  It did take some figuring out of all the different combinations I would need in order for students to dictate my "gems" for my rhythmic elements and also to provide variety from which they could choose to write their own patterns.

Of course my OCD kicked in and I HAD to raid EVERY Walgreens I could find until I had enough to make the following sets:
  1. ta ti-ti (4 erasers in a set for 4 beat composition or dictation)
  2. ta rest (4 erasers in a set for 4 beat composition or dictation)
  3. tika-tika (16 erasers in a set for 4-16 beat composition or dictation)
  4. ti-tika (16 erasers in a set for 4-16 beat composition or dictation)
  5. tika-ti (16 erasers in a set for 4-16 beat composition or dictation)
Don't forget that tomorrow through Thursday everything in my TpT store is 15% off! :)

Happy Teaching Everyone!

  1. I LOVE this idea! Would you mind if I (a) share it with my elementary education music methods class and/or (b) post about it on my blog? I think it's a great, reusable, portable way for students to compose their own music! Keep up the great work!
