Christmas Snowman Music Note Recognition Game

(0)
A game to support note recognition in the treble and bass clefs. Includes: 4 printable game boards covering different ranges of pitch (two in the treble clef and two in the bass clef) 8 game cards Instructions How to play the game: Place a token for each player on the board. Lay the game cards in a pile. Players take turns to roll a dice and move their token around the board. The player must identify each note the land on, and say a word starting with that letter which fits the description on the top game card. Each card is used until a player can’t think of a suitable word. If a player can’t think of a word that fits, they keep the card, and the next card is used for the next turn. The winner is the player with the fewest cards when all cards have been used. Example - a player lands on note G. The description on the card in play is ‘Something you might find on Santa’s sleigh…’ . The player could say ‘gifts’, then it would be the next players turn, using the same game card. If a player lands on note D and cannot think of something starting with D, the player keeps that card and the next player takes a turn using the next game card on the pile.
