I always love to play “Staff Races” with my students. I draw a big staff on the ground in chalk, or on the board. I have a ‘starting line’, and then students race to the staff. The first person to get their hand or foot on the right line or space get a point for their team. (I never let the kids run when I have an overly competitive class. I’m always too afraid someone will get hurt!)
After students start showing understanding, I will have them race to form words with teammates instead of just one note. I love when we can play this outside! It’s a great game to cure the indoor blues.
This year, I was hoping to try a different method or two to try out! So here are 5 great ideas I’ve seen recently for working on Treble Clef note name practice. To do that, I’m introducing my Monthly Pin Round Up! Each month, I’ll pick a different topic and share 5 awesome pins on the topic.
This one is a great idea! Staff twister sounds like a great idea!
This one is a bit more of a general game that could be used for ANY topic, but I love the idea of putting cards with the notes on the staff down. I think it would go pretty quickly so a real game could be played.
I never thought I’d say that, but this looks like a fun way to practice! I like the idea of the students picking a a note and then having to match the treble clef to the hole! This would be amazing if you have kids that love this game
This classic game is a really fun way to practice learning notes. I’ve played this game before and used it this year as well. I’m always a fan!
I like this little center game, which could also be used as a full class activity.
