Bottle Cap Staffs (or staves) make great manipulatives AND you will find this “no print” Google Slides version easy to use in the regular classroom setting and in blended learning and distance learning situations. Students simply read the task on each slide and then slide the semi-transparent colorful bottle caps on the bass clef staff. Think of the ways you could use this – on your projection board, during a Google or Zoom meeting, in class, as a center or station, as a Google Classroom Assignment, etc. A manipulative you don’t and won’t have to sterilize! To get an idea what this resource is all about, take a look at the preview for the treble clef version below.
