Musical Four Corners, Syncopa Rhythms

(0)
Musical 4 Corners is an interactive PowerPoint music game that's great for reinforcing 8th note, quarter, 8th note, syncopated rhythms! This game uses standard notation. See the links below if you prefer Kodály stick notation, or save money with the stick and standard bundle. There are also LOTS of slides so the game can be played for 5 minutes or 20. A favorite indoor recess game at my school is "4 Corners." I've modified the game so that each corner is a rhythm. Instead of having an "it" person, you can just play the embedded audio clip. The students who are in the corner that matches the clip are out. You, the teacher, or a student who is "it" can also just sing one of the melodies on the slide. There is also a timer sound file between each slide with a ticking clock sound. The sixteenth notes are also in stick notation if you prefer! This is a great way for students to practice audiation, rhythmic memory, and reading! More 4 Corners Games 4 Corners BUNDLE!

Musical Four Corners, Instrument Families Game - NOW WITH INSTRUMENT SOUNDS!

(0)
Musical 4 Corners is a great, interactive PowerPoint game for reinforcing instrument families (brass, woodwinds, strings, percussion, and keyboards) and instrument timbre. This was my students’ favorite game and they hardly realize that they are learning while playing. Answers are included in the presentation notes so it can be played with a sub. There are 36 instruments used in this activity. Check out the thumbnails to see them all. There are also LOTS of slides so the game can be played for 5 minutes or 20. NOW WITH AUDIO! SOUND FILES OF THE INSTRUMENTS ARE NOW EMBEDDED! I’ve gotten several requests for sound, so now there are 2 versions of this game included in the download. One without sound (students have to identify the family each instrument belongs to), and one where students hear a clip and guess which instrument it is. A favorite indoor recess game at my school is “4 Corners.” Students sneak to a corner by the count of 10 and another player with their eyes closed calls out a corner number and the players standing in that corner are out. I’ve modified the game so that each corner is an instrument. Instead of having an “it” person, you can just play the embedded audio timer clip. The next slide will show an instrument in every corner. The students standing in the corner that matches the instrument family labeled in the center of the slide are out. This is a great way for students to practice identifying instruments and categorizing them to their families!
