    SEI SEI SEI - Japanese Rock, Paper, Scissors (Multicultural Music Singing Game)

    Description

    This interactive bundle is a great way to introduce younger students to the magic of the orchestra, while building their ear-training skills! All that's needed is internet connection, and PowerPoint software (for the Jeopardy game). Also includes a free digital bonus game, 'Sei Sei Sei - Japanese Rock, Paper, Scissors'.

    Bundle includes:

    1. Listening and Identifying Instruments of the Orchestra | Music Ear Training Game

    Your students will love learning the sounds of orchestra instruments with this interactive, self-checking game. Students listen to an audio example, then click on the correct instrument picture. Incorrect choices will trigger a 'wrong' sound effect, and the picture of that instrument will disappear. The correct choice will play a corresponding sound. Students will learn to use their ears as they listen and then identify the instruments of the orchestra.

    Includes:

    3. Orchestra Instruments Music Jeopardy - Game Show with Scoreboard and Audio!

    (requires PowerPoint)

    This game features authentic audio examples of orchestral instruments! Students can practice ear-training as they listen and identify instruments based on tone and timbre, Jeopardy style! Just click the play button to hear the instrument giving a solo (this is much less confusing for the listener, as opposed to trying to discern the sound as distinct from other sounds.) The answer slides also feature a picture of the correct instrument, helping students to make the connection between sound and label.

    Cute and funny monsters represent each team, and scores update automatically when you click the monsters' eyes (check mark for correct, x for incorrect). After 30 seconds of no response, a funny buzzer sound automatically sounds! Sound effects also coordinate with the correct and incorrect responses- clicking on the check mark plays a 'crowd cheering' sound, and clicking on the x plays a 'blooper' sound. Sure to generate laughs as your students learn about the instruments!

    This game would be perfect as an extension of learning about the orchestra, as a class reward, or to incorporate as part of a lesson when there is a sub.

    Please note: the Jeopardy Game requires PowerPoint (Mac or Windows)

    Notes on function:

    You must be connected to the internet for the videos to play. Also, please be sure to enable macros and editing otherwise the scoreboard feature will not update automatically. Make sure to view file as a presentation- this will allow you to interact with the file and for all the animations and sounds to work!

    4. Music Opposites | Four-beat Rhythm Percussion Music Examples

    Join the party as monsters introduce students to the percussion family, and play four-beat rhythms for them to compare and contrast! This deck of boom cards begins with a percussion introduction, where students can tap on icons of the different instruments and hear what they sound like. Each instrument plays a solo in high-definition audio, making it fun for students to try out. Then students move on to compare four-beat rhythms- if they are the same, students tap the matching monster pair. If different, they tap the different monster pair. The rhythms given to students are only four-beats long, but cycle through all of the different percussion instruments (an icon of the current instrument is displayed in the upper-left corner of the card). Colorful graphics and beautiful sounds keep the students engaged while you access their ability to choose between contrasting rhythms!

    5. Music Dynamics Symbols Interactive Game | Loud and Quiet Orchestral Examples

    This interactive music game will introduce music dynamics to your students, and will test their listening skills using orchestral music examples. Students will learn how to recognize the symbols and their meaning, and how to listen for changes in volume within music. Ideal for playing as a class together.

    This resource begins with a mini-lesson, presenting the most common music dynamic symbols and their meaning (forte, piano, fortepiano, crescendo, decrescendo and sforzando. After the mini-lesson students can play the game - each slide has an audio example that automatically plays, and students select the card with the correct dynamic symbol. Incorrect answers will 'grey-out' the wrong card, and correct answers will make the wrong card disappear while magical dust flies out of the hat! A fun sound effect accompanies each correct answer.

    *Bonus file: SEI SEI SEI - Japanese Rock, Paper, Scissors (Multicultural Music Singing Game)

    This game was a favorite among my elementary students. It can be used from 1st grade, all the way to 5th grade! I've adapted the way the traditional game is taught, to allow the entire class to play the game at the same time. Students learn new Japanese words, sing together, and have fun together as a class!

    This product includes a background mp3 for kids to sing along to, featuring traditional Japanese instruments (Koto, Shakuhachi Flute, and Taiko Drums).

    The included mp3 plays the song 20 times, and can be played repeatedly until the entire class has finished. I've used this with as few as two students, to an entire gymnasium! It could even be used with a large group of students as part of a music program, to demonstrate music from other cultures.
