Need a name game chant to add to your Kindergarten or First Grade Class? Emmie's Musical Monkeys has notated a chant and written out teaching ideas for you. The game can be used in kindergarten and extended into first and second grade as a music literacy activity (quarter notes, beamed eighth notes & quarter rest). A coloring sheet is also included to send home with students where they can write their name, color, practice reading text and share what they have learned with their parents.
This could be used by the music teacher, substitute (if previously taught to the class) or classroom teacher. It is a great opportunity to discuss speaking voice and using a speaking voice everyone can clearly hear as well as keep a steady beat while speaking. Students love the game because they have a turn to also roll their ball after they do their speaking part.
The slides come in PDF format and can be easily viewed using your LCD projector!
