Musical Note Value Snap
Improve your beginner music students' note value recognition skills with this game of musical snap.

It includes:
- Quavers/eighth notes
- Crotchets/quarter notes
- Minims/half notes
- Dotted minims/dotted half notes
- Semibreves/whole notes

Each card contains a series of notes adding up to 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 beats. Players can snap any two cards that add up to the same number of beats. Each card has an exact duplicate as well as cards with other combinations that add up to the same number of beats. Once they can play this game successfully, pupils will have a solid grounding in note values and their equivalents.

Note Value Snap can be played as a quick 5 or 10-minute game during lessons or your pupils can spend longer playing it at home as part of their practice time. Encourage children to reinforce their knowledge by showing their sibling or parent how to play - they'll love taking on the role of teacher.

These cards can also be used as flashcards with adults.

The pack includes two versions. Version one has a patterned back. Fold over each card and laminate it for a hardwearing copy that can be used in every lesson. Version two has no back so you can print it directly on to card.
