    Five engaging games to get your students excited about new music topics! Perfect for a sub tub! These games are must have for all of those moments you need to catch their attention, fill some time, or are perfect to include for a sub. I bet even you can't get them all right!

    I don't have lots of time when I'm in the need for a sub. Having a sub in my room shouldn't mean that it takes me longer to set up than the time I'll actually be gone! This is why I adore my Music Or Not games. They are easy to run, adaptable, and don't include ridiculous amounts of set up time.

    Sometimes, our students have preconceived notions of what a topic is going to entail. They don't want to learn about Opera because its the lady in horns and Jazz is slow and boring. All those old guys have music that sounds the same.

    Put some of the fun back and get rid of their preconceived notions about music!

    Even your not so tech-friendly subs can handle these games with great options to play without technology.

    Students are introduced to:

    • Opera Titles

    • Jazz Songs
    • Symphony Titles
    • Instruments of the World

    They will love learning about music in a new, hilarious way that is sure to get their competitive juices flowing!

    Perfect games to play as intro or closing activities for specific units, open house games, or as cross-curricular activities. And even better, these are the best emergency sub plans! They can be played by the kids in groups so you can be print free!

Get 4 for the price of 5 by buying the bundle! Will save you 20%!


    Here are some ideas for using the game:

    • Emergency sub plans for all ages
    • Perfect because your sub does not have to be a music person.
    • Open House Activity
    • End of class reward
    • Game Day
    • Game at the beginning or end of units
    • Cross curricular activities


    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Julianne L. says, "So far I have only used the "Opera or Cheese" game with 5th grade students as an attention-getter at the start of an opera unit. I'm excited to use the various other games with other grade levels too. These will be great for end-of-year class periods, sub activities, or even just days when the class isn't feeling too great mentally. Thank you for making these available as a bundle!"

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Jackie B. says, "My students loved these! This is my "go to" for a non-music sub now. Some of the classroom teachers were talking to me about these because the students went back to class talking about them. One teacher suggested doing a few slides at a staff meeting! "

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Matthew C. says, "This game set is absolutely hilarious and my kids just have a blast with it. It is something to play when you really just need to give the students a break or a reward. While they might learn something from playing it, it is almost more fun if no one in the group knows anything from the start. I use it during conference weeks when I have a really short class and can't get much else done, store it in my substitute folder, and bring it out for the occasional rainy day or as a bonus for hard work."

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Colette H. says, "My middle school students loved this! I struggle to find material engaging enough, but simple enough for them. This is one of those games that I can use across the board with all my students! Thank you!"
