I liked how I was able to walk them through the process. "Okay, he rolled a 6. What note could he pull out first? Now that he's pulled out a whole note, how many beats does he have left?" And so on. . .
I never realized how engaged the WHOLE CLASS would be. I might use this as an overall class activity in the future as well as using it in my centers.
I did notice that none of my kids chose multiple note bricks (well, they did use one brick with 2 quarter notes). I think the more they play this, the more confident they will be to use the more complex bricks.
