Cover it up Manipulative

Cover it up Manipulative:

I made this manipulatives to build small muscle skills and recycle some more items in our environment. In this activity, I recycled a plastic cookie dish and lid from Christmas treats, a pop lid, jeans around the lid and I had some of these stickey circles on hand and left over. The stickey circles are stuck onto a piece of foam that was recycled from a small cake. I wanted the shapes to show up really well and this worked for my activity.

The children pick a color and try to move the lid left or right, up or down to cover up a complete circle in the color they have decided to cover up. The keep trying shaking the container a little at a time until they accomplish their goal and start over.

If you like my ideas leave me a message. Have a nice day!
