The Joys of Bubble Wrap

 Bubble wrap is a versatile teaching tool.  Here are some examples of how it can be used.
1.  Students can pop the bubble wrap every time they hear rhyming words.
2.  Pop the bubble wrap for every word with a certain vowel/consonant sound.
3.  Read a paragraph and pop the bubbles when they here a fact or opinion (your choice).
4.  Read a paragraph twice.  The second reading, have students pop their bubbles when they hear the sentence that tells the main idea of the paragraph.
5.  When a certain blend is heard, pop the bubble wrap.
1.  Skip count.  When multiples are heard, pop the bubble wrap.  For example, for the number 4, pop bubble wrap on numbers 4, 8, 12, 16, etc.
2.  Pop when even or odd numbers are heard (your choice).
3.  Pop the bubble wrap when a key word is heard in a word problem.
What else can you think of for the bubble wrap?
