PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle is designed to be used as a “Summer Challenge”. Each student receives a “passport”, and as the student completes the corresponding activity, they can stamp off their passport over the course of the summer. These summer-themed activities could be used in the last few minutes of each lesson, or they can be used as centres all at once.

All activities follow the instructions below.

Activity #1 – Summer Fun Puzzle
Students complete a summer themed puzzle. Print out the puzzles on cardstock and cut along the lines.
Early Beginner: Students put the palm tree puzzle together by arranging the letters in the order of the musical alphabet.
Early/Late Intermediate: Students put the crab puzzle together by arranging the note values from shortest to longest.

Activity #2 – Ice Cream Intervals
Students put the scoops of ice cream on the cone to match intervals. Print out the ice cream pieces on cardstock, cut out, and laminate, if desired.
Early Beginner: Students put the keyboard intervals on the correct cone.
Late Beginner: Students put the keyboard intervals, harmonic intervals, and melodic intervals on the correct cone (2nd to 5th).
Early Intermediate: Students put the keyboard intervals, harmonic intervals, and melodic intervals on the correct cone (2nd to 7th).

Activity #3 – Sunglasses Sight-Reading
Students sight read passages or clap back passages appropriate for their level (not included in this bundle). They can circle a pair of sunglasses for each passage that they have sight-read.
Early Beginners to Late Intermediate: Use appropriate sight-reading materials.

Activity #4 – Beach Ball Matching
Cut out beach balls and mini-cards on cardstock. Students match the correct definition to the picture. There are several ways to do this. You could play this as a “go fish” type game. You could have students independently match the cards to the correct beach ball. Another option is to make a file folder game out of this, and decorate the file folder like a beach.
Early Beginners to Early Intermediate: Use cards that the student should be familiar with.

Activity #5 – Summertime Music Appreciation Activity
Listen to a summer-themed song (Vivaldi’s “Summer”, The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun”, etc.). Complete the music response page while listening to the song.
Early Beginners to Late Beginners: Listen to the song and complete the simple colouring worksheet.
Early Intermediate to Late Intermediate: Listen to the song and complete the table.

Activity #6 – Summer Rhythms (Clapping)
Cut out the rhythm cards with the summer pictures. Students will practice their rhythm skills by clapping the rhythms on the cards.
Early Beginner: Have students practice clapping the simple rhythms.
Late Beginner: Practice clapping the simple rhythms and then put the cards in whatever order the student wants to. Have them perform their rhythm.
Early Intermediate: Practice clapping all of the rhythms and then put the cards in whatever order the student wants to. Have them perform their rhythm.
Late Intermediate: Practice clapping all of the rhythms and then put the cards in whatever order the student wants to. Have them perform their rhythm on the piano using the notes of a scale.

Activity #7 – Summer Rhythms (Ear Training)
Cut out the same rhythm cards as Activity #6 with the summer pictures. Students will practice their rhythm skills by listening for the rhythms on the cards. Place several cards out in front of the student. Clap a rhythm that is on one of the cards, and then have the student find the card.
Early Beginners and Late Beginners: Clap simple rhythms for the student to listen to.
Early Intermediate: Clap more difficult rhythms for the student to listen to. Have the student clap the rhythm back to you.
Late Intermediate: Clap 3 to 4 rhythms in sequence for the student to listen to.

Activity #8 – Beach Ball Race
Use the same cards as Activity #4. You will need a die and game pieces. Place the mini cards face up near the board. Place the beach balls in a pile to make a deck. Roll the die, pick up a beach ball, and try to find the matching card in the mini card pile. If you correctly found the mini card, move as many spaces as you rolled.
Early Beginners to Early Intermediate: Use cards that the student should be familiar with.

Activity #9 – Fun in the Sun Worksheet
Print off the worksheets. There are 3 different ones. Instructions for each worksheet are below.
Early Beginners: Complete the simple worksheet. Colour the two groups red and colour the three groups blue. Then, match the picture to the correct term.
Late Beginners: Name the notes. Name the intervals (2nds to 5ths). Complete the rhythm math (quarter notes, half notes, whole notes).
Early Intermediate: Name the notes. Name the intervals (2nds to 8ths). Complete the rhythm math (eighth notes, dotted quarter notes, etc.).
