Looking for a Halloween activity to improve early recorder skills? This game will work well for beginner recorder players as a learning piece, a reinforcement piece or a formal assessment piece.
A "trick-or-treater" walks around the circle with a bucket of Halloween Character pictures (included in file as PDF for printing). When the song ends, the trick-or-treater gives a picture to the student he stops behind. That student locates the matching picture on the screen (Smart Notebook file), and taps it. This will take the student to a 4 beat BAGE pattern to play on his/her recorder. Then the class can echo the pattern to keep them engaged during someone else's turn! The recorder player then becomes the new trick-or-treater. There are enough slides for 26 students to have turns. If you have more than 26 in your class simply recycle the pictures.
The Smart Notebook file also includes a recording of the accompaniment for the Trick-Or-Treat song. Students can sing along or play this BAGE melody on their recorders with the accompaniment!
