Sometimes young students need a more exciting way to learn their notes on the staff. I mean, flashcards are great and all, but can get a little old. This week I made a little memory matching game for a student who needed a new way to work on her notes. This game is super simple (and let's admit it, it really isn't THAT different from actual flashcards, but puts a new twist on it!) and it's a nice way to shake things up a bit. Plus you get to get off of the bench for this one (a definite plus!)
Now available on my "Free Printables" page is a Musical Memory game.
My daughter was more than obliged to get in the picture and demonstrate the game!
Students match Middle C Position notes to their letter names
I laminated mine with my laminator and love how they turned out! These will last for a long time.
Whatever activities you decide to use with your young students, I encourage you to get off of the bench more often and find new ways to bring fun and excitement into lessons!
