Momma Don't Allow bubbles

  • I truly enjoed Lynn's seeion at AOSA "What Happened Next?" I am currently using the Momma Don't Allow" book and lesson ideas with my 3rd grade recorder sudents. We are having so much fun with it that I'd like to share an adaption of the bubbles manipulatives that Lynn used.

    I was not sure that I'd be able to secure enough plain, clear bottle caps to write the rhythms on, so I used Word to make circles with the rhythms inside. I printed them on sticker sheets, cut them out and stuck them to the tops of the caps. This allowed me to use caps that had writing on top.

    I hope that idea is helpful others. I'd be hapy to share my templae if anone would like ot use it.
