Pumpkin picking has never been such fun! In these interactive games your students will choose a pumpkin then read the pattern behind it. Additionally, teaching extension ideas have been included as well as a worksheets for both melodic and rhythmic elements. These worksheets will promote musical writing, dictation and composition skills.
To play, you simply click on a pumpkin in the PDF files. The students will then read the melodic pattern hiding behind the pumpkin. You could choose to play in teams and see who can correctly read more pumpkins correctly or you could use these in centers.
For each melodic element there are four interactive PDFs: one written in solfa-stick notation with note heads, one written in solfa-stick notation without note heads, one on the staff in F-do and one on the staff in G-do.
Melodic included in this file:
re (tetratonic and pentatonic patterns)
For each rhythmic element two interactive PDFs are included: one written in stick notation with note heads and one written in stick notation without note heads.
