Count by Measure Cards

Use these cards as an aid to explain the concept of time signatures and measures, and practice counting by measure. Students lay out cards into measures, using popsicle sticks (or a similar prop) for barlines, then count the number of seats in each room (i.e. 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4).
