These game cards are a great way and absolutely fun way to help teach new skills and/or reinforce previously learned skills. Use them with childhood parlor games with the name "beans" and /or "ice" where children try not to knock them over or out. The parlor games themselves are produced by Hasbro™ and they are not included. Print out the cards, laminate (to help preserve them for years) then cut them out. Yes - learning CAN be fun and I just know your students will have a ton of it (fun) while learning and reinforcing their skills with these childhood favorites! Even my newer 7th graders learned music skills and enjoyed themselves!
You can use these as part of a unit, learning centers/workstations or a reward/game day. They can also be a lifesaver if you need or want a "sub tub" of activities.
Included in this resource set for the two games listed above are cards for:
♫ Note/Rest values
♫ Staff Letter names (Treble and Bass Clef Versions)
♫ Recorder Fingerings
♫ Instrument Families (string, woodwind, brass, percussion)
♫ Printing Instructions and Game Instructions (for how to use with music)
Besides printing out the cards, all I had to do (after purchasing my sets of games) was to write on the "ice cubes." For the Notes/Rests version I drew notes and rests on the ice cubes. For the staff letter names I just wrote one letter of the musical alphabet on each cube. (This allowed me to use the same game set for both treble and bass clefs as well as the recorder fingerings - I just traded out the little cards that are included in this resource.) For the Instrument Families version I wrote one name of each of the families (brass, percussion, woodwind and brass) on an ice cube.
The possibilities are endless with these cards and they come in color as well as black & white.....
This set was given to my followers (for free) as a thank-you to celebrate my 200th follower landmark. If you aren't already a follwer...just another reason to become a follower.:)
