Staff Manipulatives

I use a couple of different manipulatives for staff notation.

In 2nd grade, we begin using 3 lines. We practice putting round felt notes (see example below) on lines and spaces.

We get to know which line is 1 and which space is 2, etc.

On the other side I have a 5-lined staff, which we use later in 2nd grade and in all older grades. I store the felt staffs in ziploc bags with the felt notes folded inside. I only made one for every 2 students, and they share.

I also use laminated staffs with bingo chips.
