4 Corners is a great PowerPoint music game for reinforcing half notes!
A favorite indoor recess game at my school is "4 Corners."
I've modified the game so that each corner is a rhythm.
The rhythms include Quarter Notes, Quarter Rests, and Beamed Eighth Notes.
Instead of having an "it" person, you can just play the embedded audio clip. The students who are in the corner that matches the clip are out.
Just repeat this process until there is one player left.
You, the teacher, or a student who is "it" can also just sing one of the melodies on the slide. To incorporate a "math" component, the corners are labeled in the same format that quadrants are labeled on a graph.
There is also a timer sound file between each slide with a ticking clock sound. This is a great way for students to practice audiation, rhythmic memory, and reading!
The notes are also in stick notation if you prefer!
