Monday Mailbag – Scale Blocks

Would you mind also explaining your step 1 of how you make the scale blocks – why you needed 12 of the first block and only 8 of the next ones?  I’m sure there is a very simple explanation, but at this moment it is eluding me!

This is in reference to the How to Make Your Own Scale Blocks post.  The only reason I did this is because I made four full sets of two octave C  scales, and I placed a C at the beginning, middle, and end. Here’s the picture so you can see what I mean:

It would probably make just as much sense to do an equal number of all the blocks so that it would be consistent for forming any scale, but I decided to do a few extra of the C-block. Click here for a variety of games and activities that you can play with your students using the scale blocks!
