Kids can quickly learn the names of the piano keys with this fun game. Each time the child answers correctly, he gets another scoop of ice cream. Before long, he’s got a towering jumbo ice cream cone that he’s really proud of.
Print on card stock and cut out each piece.
How to Play:
Hold up a scoop of ice cream for the child to see. If the child can correctly say the letter name of the piano key on the first try, he gets to add the ice cream to his cone. If he isn’t able to name the piano key it on the first try, help him by pointing out how we can identify that piano key by looking at the black key groups. Then place that scoop of ice cream back in the pile to come back to later.
Display another ice cream scoop. If the child can correctly name this piano key on the first try, he gets to add it to his cone, and make his ice cream cone even taller. Continue play with all the cards. When a child cannot correctly answer on the first try, review with him and then place it back in the pile to come back to. The game is over when the child has correctly identified all the piano keys and built a jumbo ice cream cone.
