3 Versions (for varied difficulties)
Symbols with Symbols
Symbols with Names
Symbols with Values
Each version contains 64 note dominoes, and 64 rest dominoes.
Note/Rest Values include: whole, dotted half, half, dotted quarter, quarter, dotted eighth, eighth, and sixteenth.
You can use these sets in multiple ways. You can play with just NOTES, just RESTS, or you can combine them.
If you combine them, you could allow players to place notes to their corresponding rests for a fun twist!
Use the symbols with names, or symbols with value versions to amp up the difficulty for older students!
Cut out the dominoes along the GRAY lines (do NOT cut the black lines, or you will cut the dominoes in half!) I recommend printing them on cardstock and/or laminating them before use to make them more durable. I would NOT recommend printing all of them at once! Look through and decide which levels you would like to use, then use the table of contents below to see which pages you need to print.

Rules For 2-4 players:
Feel free to adapt these rules to fit however you would like to play - these are just some simple guidelines on how to play a basic version of dominoes.
Mix up the dominoes, deal 7 to each player. Set the leftover cards aside to form a draw pile.
The person with the highest double places it in the center. A double is two of the same note/rest on the same card ( ♩ | ♩ )
Play continues clockwise to the next person.
That person must play a domino with a side that matches the double placed.
Play continues moving clockwise around, each player playing off of the two open sides.
If a player cannot play a domino, they must draw one from the draw pile.
A player's turn ends after placing a domino, or drawing a domino from the draw pile.
The first player to run out of dominoes to play wins!
