Looking for games for your SMART board, Chromebooks, and/or iPads? Wanting a fun activity for centers and/or blended learning? This bundled set includes 20 games for various rhythmic and melodic concepts, as well as treble clef reading, allowing students to practice musical elements with whatever technology you have! These can work well with distance learning; simply provide a link and students can play the games at home!
This set includes:
*Trip to the Zoo games for quarter rest and tika-ti (2 sixteenths/ 1 eighth): This fun game has students listening to a pattern and choosing the corresponding animal. The quarter rest game includes ta, ti-ti, and rest, and the tika-ti game includes ta, ti-ti, rest, tika-tika, half note, ti-tika, and tika-ti.
*Superhero Patterns for ta/ti-ti (quarter note and eighth notes) and half note: This interactive game has students choosing a superhero and then reading that pattern. If students play on a SMART board, they can throw a squishy ball at the board to choose a pattern! The ta and ti-ti game only includes ta and ti-ti, and the half note game includes ta, ti-ti, rest, and half note.
*Build a Sundae game for tika-tika (sixteenth notes): This fun game has students choosing a sundae, then reading a pattern to add an ingredient, playing the pattern on a non-pitched percussion instrument to add another ingredient, and then reading an 8-beat pattern to add the last ingredient.
*Build a Sundae game for low sol: This fun game has students choosing a sundae, then singing a stick notation pattern to add an ingredient, playing the pattern on a barred instrument to add another ingredient, and then singing a pattern on the staff to add the last ingredient.
*The Explorer's Tools for do and fa: Students read the stick notation pattern, then figure out which of the explorer's tools (or staff notation patterns) matches!
*Be Unique for re and ti-tika: Students choose a kid, then read or sing that kid's pattern, then change it by one beat! Great for developing improvisational and inner hearing skills!
*Road Trip for La and Syncopa: Students choose a stop on their road trip, then read or sing two patterns to see the sights at that stop!
*Cup Stacking for Low La and High do: Students sing each pattern to watch the cups stack!
*Find the Key for Sol-Mi and Tim-ka: Students listen to each audio clip and figure out which key opens the door!
*Which Spaceship?: Includes four treble clef games--one for lines, one for spaces, one for lines and spaces, and one for extended treble clef staff. In this game, students choose which spaceship matches the note on the treble clef staff.
*QR codes: These sheets can be projected onto the SMART board or printed out for iPads, so students can scan to open the game.
*Bit.ly links: This list has all of the shortened bit.ly links students can type into a browser on an iPad or Chromebook to open the game.
*Full links: This list has all of the full links for the games, in case your district blocks shortened URL's.
*Audio: This is only included for teachers whose districts block outside links, so you can make a copy of each game, add it to your drive, then re-insert audio so that students can view and listen.
*Directions for the set: This includes directions for how to have students open up the games as well as how to play the games.
Please note: Links are provided for the games; the games themselves are not in the zipped folder, as they are opened up in Google Slides.
I hope this set is helpful for you as your students work at centers, on 1:1 devices, or in a whole group setting, to practice musical concepts.
