This is a great game to practice melodic patterns using sol, la, or mi.
*Note* - I use a 3-line staff for my beginners. Watch for a 5-line staff version, along with different pentatonic patterns, coming soon!
Divide your class into teams, have them select a basketball from the menu and sing the pattern provided. If they get it right, they have a chance for a "free throw." Set up a small free-throw shoot in your room - grab a basketball and have them try to make an extra point that way.
Included in this file are:
Printable cards to keep score
16 different melodic pattern practice pages (can also be used as flash cards for practice)
My kids love playing this game - hope yours do too!
