Just in time for Valentine's Day, a color-by-note heart. This activity will complement seasonal activities as well as activities focusing on friendship or music notation. The activity uses note value identification (quarter note, eighth note pairs, half note, and whole notes as well as their corresponding rests) to guide coloring the heart.
This activity features ONE puzzle modified several ways to fit your classroom needs. The first two versions suggest the use of a holiday themed color pallet. One version provides note symbols in the coloring key. The other version provides written names of the note values (requiring name identification). Also included are the same puzzles (note symbols and written names) but without the color suggestions. The colors have been left blank so you can fill in what colors work best for you and your students. This is a great activity to reinforce your students' music reading skills -- and it's fun too!
