This is a very versatile resource to use during small group or indivual instruction as well as for behavior management. I use it when I am teaching my small groups of reading and math. For each correct answer, they earn a piece for the mat. I also use it for behavior management - earn a piece for x behavior(s) and when completed you earn ___. Works extremely well - especially for students with special needs. I also have a green eggs and ham and a hamburger mat. To use the mat, print out on cardstock, laminate and use velcro to attach pieces, some pieces will attach to other pieces (the sauce will velcro to the noodles and the meatballs will velcro to the sauce/noodles). Once again, very versatile!
