From sight word practice ....
to just plain fun! :-)
Remember all the things you can reinforce with cup stacking...just write it on the bottom of the cup. They can stack the ones they get correct. The incorrect ones go back to the bottom of the stack of cups to try again.
Here are some of the things that we've been working on that we could incorporate cup stacking with, if we desired.
* alphabet/number recognition
* sight words/spelling words (read, then spell before stacking)
* math facts (+,-,x, /)
* noun vs. verb
* action/being verbs
* days of the week-months of the year words
* vocabulary words
* expanded form of large numbers
* reading large numbers
* greater than/less than
* and so much more!
When they were with a partner...wow! Lots of cooperation needed!
So fun to observe! :-)
