Product Description
Musical Baseball is a fun approach to assessment and data collection that’s exciting and engaging for the students. It takes the game of baseball, and applies it to melodic development. The method is easily adapted to any developmental level; working just as well with kindergarten students as it does with 5th grade. It gets students up and active, yet continues to develop their internal sense of pitch, melodic direction, and reading.
Some of the objectives that the game measures are:
Students will be able to identify upward and downward movement in written music
Students will be able to listen to notes and identify as “same” or “different” and as moving “higher” or “lower”
Students will be able to sing melodies that move in skips and with repeated notes
Students will be able to sing melodies that move in skips and with repeated notes
Students will be able to identify steps, leaps, repeats in written and performed melodies
Students will be able to read melodic phrases and identify repeated notes that move by skips
Students will identify intervals of more than a skip in written notation
Students will be able to classify melodies as major or minor

This packet contains complete instructions on how to introduce and develop the game, batting practice sheets, and sample data collection sheets. All you will need to supply is two xylophones or glockenspiels with removable bars and the space in your classroom to play.
