Looking for a fun, flexible addition to your November music lessons?
These Thanksgiving musical alphabet cards are perfect for playing games with ALL of your students. The cards go from C-B, plus addition game cards to spice up game play. Easy to cut out and quick to play, these game cards can be used in a variety of ways for every level of student! I can think of at least five different game ideas to play with these cards...
Piano Keyboard Review - Start off with both players on Middle C on the piano, then draw a card and move up the keyboard. The first one reach the top of the piano wins the game. (Make sure to remove the “Middle C, You Win” card from the stack)
Grand Staff Review- Use a set of alphabet cards to drill the notes on the staff (click here for a giant printable grand staff). Start off with both players on Middle C, then draw a card and move to that note on the staff. The first one to draw the “Middle C, You Win” card wins the game.
Finger Number Review- Place all the cards either in a stack or in a bag/box. Draw a card one at a time and then have the other person name an finger number e.g. “Simon Says put your (2) on A.” Play until you have used all the cards.
Composing- roll a dice and then pull that number of cards out of a box/bag. Create a short melody by arranging the letters into a fun song!
General Review Scavenger Hunt- Scatter all the cards around the room- have the student race to find the cards and bring them back to you. For more advanced students, have them match the cards to a grand staff note. Less advanced, have them identify the card and piano key as they hand them back to you.
