Texture Lesson/Rubbing Plate Storage

Every year I do a texture unit with Kindergarten.  I start by using rubbing plates to show actual(tactile) & visual texture.  They also make a great sound!! One of the problems I have though is the texture plates are hard to store & pass out.  They are slippery little buggers!!  So I finally decided the best way to do it is  separate them out into gallon Ziploc/Hefty bags.  This keeps the neat & organized.  The students pull them out & put them back as they are using them...so they are all over the place.  Today was the first time I used them...worked like a dream!

  2. They are very quiltish! :) They will be hung up in the hall, but other than that..they are done. This is a stepping stone to other projects. We do a texture hunt around the school. Then we create clay texture necklaces(they love that).

  4. They are slippery little suckers! Thanks for the tip. I tried putting mine in paper "folders" I had made, but they would slip right out. Right on, Mr. E!
