This is a great activity for younger students who are just learning about quarter notes!
One side of the page has them circle every quarter note the find - recognizing the note when it's surrounded by other notes. The other side of the page has them trace quarter notes and then draw their own.
This uses both stem-up and stem-down quarter notes so that students can get used to recognizing both.
