Cups for Clapping

I saw this activity at a workshop last weekend. The green cups are rests or "shhh" notes. The blue cones are quarter notes. We moved the cones around the cups to create patterns we liked, then "read" the patterns by clapping and resting. First graders really enjoyed this activity and were able to pick up some composition grids and create their own patterns on paper. Rock on First Grade!

  1. What a great manipulative idea. So concrete and so age-appropriate. Love the small group work, too. What a great learning opportunity. I bet the kids love being in your classroom!
