Jazzy Jack-o-Lanters

Students in first grade were given a sheet of music symbols.  We identified the ones we new and briefly talked about the new symbols.  Then I challenged students to use only music symbols to create a jazzy jack-o-lantern.  I showed them some samples from a bulletin board I created and they were off.  I love how creative they were!


  1. This is so cute! I am totally doing this next week!

  2. This is awesome! I have to do music AND art so this is a perfect activity for this week!

  3. I do something very similar, but on the back of the jack-o-lanterns, the kids have to tell me how many beats they used to create their design. The kids love it!
