Note from Miss Peters:

Hello everyone!

I am in need of your help. Call it a scavenger hunt if you will. You are going to need to drink a lot of Gatorade but don't throw out the caps! I would like to use them for a music manipulative game... hear me out:


This activity calls for a set of 8 caps per student with note letter names to sort in the order they appear on a music staff. I have included a picture. They are the regular 38mm caps that are orange and NOT the squeeze bottle kind. I am not referring to the caps you would find on a 2 liter soda.


I am going to need A LOT. There will be a box in the teacher's lounge labeled "Caps for Music". Teachers, place yours in the box as well as what the students bring in. Please make sure they are washed for they will be going into the hands of the students.


Thank you all very much and I look forward to a GREAT year of music making!
