Thanksgiving time is a great time to create music. What a better way to say you are thankful for someone or something?

Students can create a their special composition in this game by rolling dice and spinning for notes. It's a great way to review note placement on the staff (stems going up/down), time signatures, rhythm, measures... all while creating a fun piece they can call their own!

Spinner options:

Homemade option 1: You will want to get what is called a brad. (you can find them at office supply store's, etc...) then I just take a paperclip and wrap it around it. With the long part of the paper clip sticking straight out. Make sure you print the spinner on card stock.

Homemade option 2: Take a long paper clip and hold a pen or pencil on the end of the paper clip and spin.

Amazon option 1: Amazon also sells separate spinners you can add to the board and purchase here.

Amazon option 2: Or my latest favorite option! Place a transparent spinner on top! Click here to order it on Amazon.
