These cards represent well known Kodaly inspired songs used by many teachers in classrooms,
music schools and private studios.
I have found them to be an excellent way to have fun reviewing.
Print on card stock and cut out.
Use these cards by themselves:
1.Teacher holds up a card. Students must clap rhythm, sing solfa or play.
2. Put all the cards out on the table or floor face up. Ask a student to choose a card for the class to play. As students become more proficient, put cards out face down.
3. WHICH ONE?? Teacher puts out four Song Cards face up. Teacher either claps the rhythm, sings in solfa, plays or silently uses the hand signs. Students must choose the appropriate Song Card . Later have a student lead.
Use cards in combination with First Liners Cards as a matching game:
Put out all the First Liners cards out on the table or floor, face side up. Give each student a Song Card and ask him/her to choose the corresponding rhythm and/or solfa card.
These cards represent the first two bars of well known Kodaly inspired songs in rhythm or solfa. Use these cards to re-enforce aural memory in both rhythm and solfa.
They can be used separately or in combination and with the Song Cards.
Print and cut out the cards.
Rhythm or solfa cards: teacher reads the card aloud and asks the students to identify the song. Later teacher shows the card only, no aural clue.
In combination: teacher puts down a rhythm card, students must cover it with the corresponding solfa card.
With illustrated song cards: teacher holds up a Song Card, students must clap, sing, use handsigns or write the appropriate rhythm or solfa.
