Several of my students love to play Dominotes so I decided to make a slightly "larger" version. The bigger the better, right?
So with the help of some foam rectangles and a good permanent marker, I made my own version...they measure about 9"x12" and will make a giant version of the game on my studio floor or even outdoors.
In hindsight, I wish I had made them 6"x12" so that each half was square - more like an actual domino. As you can see from the picture, when you start to match up at a 90 degree angle, the bottom of the note you add is slightly larger. I'm still happy with the result, though. It's another way to work on note values and showing the relationship between notes.
And what child wouldn't love to work on a game this large and this colorful?
This game will also be a great addition to my summer camps!
