Ideas Worth Sharing – Mosaic Tiles

We survey many of our customers and sometimes we ask them what they use the products they are buying for. We continue to be wowed by your creative, resourceful and genius ideas, so we want to share them for others to enjoy!

Sharon Quinn, A K-6 Art Teacher from Windham, NY shares with us her use for our Tiny Tiles 

Mosaic bulk tiles“These tiles will be used in a 5th grade art class.  I give the students a grid paper on which they need to chart out a picture or design.  The colors used in the artwork will then be counted out and recorded.  Before starting their mosaic, they need to count out corresponding tiles so they have all they need to complete their picture or design.  They then glue the tiles onto a square board, starting at the top left and working down, row by row, like reading a book, to the bottom.  The finished picture is then grouted.

Perfect lesson for coordinating with math: students find math shortcuts to adding up rows of the same color for instance by multiplying, counting tiles of the same color by 10’s, seeing sets of colors in patterns, etc.  Also, strengthens organization by “reading” the tiles as if they were words, row by row, so that all of the tiles fit when they come to the bottom row.”

We encourage you to continue sharing your ideas in the comments below or in our surveys!
