Stacking and Balancing

6 Feb

Hi there everyone! I did this little game with a few of my kids I see in the school and they loved it, so I thought I’d share! I placed the blocks on the beam, and coordinating color cup on the left side of the beam on the floor, facilitating crossing midline. I had the kids walk across, first placing the block on top of the cup, then walk back, moving the block back to the beam. Lots of fun ways to grade and modify this activity! You can use a pedestal beam, or strip of tape; you can choose not to use the grabbers; use more blocks to build a higher tower; mix up the colors to have the child walk forwards/backwards/sideways, the list goes on and on! You can even use the numbers on the top of each block for part of the task. Dice blocks, grabber, and cups (bear counter cups) came from Mardel! Enjoy!
