At this station students work together to read simple melodies on the treble clef staff and play them together using Boomwhackers.
Even the big kids like to color! At this station they are using a color by note worksheet. Teachers: You can find this resource at the website of the fabulous Martha Stanley.
iPad Station-Flashnote Derby
At this station, students used the Flashnote Derby app to test their knowledge of the treble clef lines and spaces. This fast paced review really helps see who knows their notes!
At this station students sat on a large tablecloth (I wish I had a blue one!) and matched fish to fishbowls. Each fishbowl had a treble clef staff with 3-8 notes on it. By identifying the letter names of each, students discovered that it spelled a word. Then they found the matching fish which had a word on it.
Spell a Story
At this station, students worked on a pitch identification worksheet. As they identify the pitch names of the notes they complete a story.
Treble Twist Up
Everyone likes Twister, right? This game is a great deal like Twister. I created a staff with a plain shower curtain and electrical tape. I've also created them with masking tape on carpet too. Works great! Students then use a spinner that I created and follow the directions "Right Hand E!" "Left foot B!" for a fun and physical way to review pitch names.
Teachers: You can download the template to make your own Treble Twist Up spinner HERE.
