Stockings Hung with Care: Treble Clef Staff Activity with High G, Low D & Middle C

I just recently posted this game on my TpT (Teachers Pay Teachers) store.  It goes along with my original "Stockings Hung with Care" game that can be found here in my blog!

The directions for set up and how to play are the same, but I added High G. . .

Low D. . .

and Middle C. . .

Some teachers choose to introduce these notes right away in their classrooms (especially if the student is learning piano).  I usually don't introduce these notes (especially the lower ones) until later as most of our staff reading goes along with the recorder unit I teach.

So if you are in need of an activity for your students to review the treble clef staff including these notes above and below, click on any of the pictures above and it'll take you where you need to go! :-)

Stockings Hung With Care: A Treble Clef Review Game

I was thinking recently that I wanted a new treble clef review game, and then a person on my TpT store mentioned that they had been looking for a game to review the treble clef staff too! And this is what popped in my head. . .

I think this will be really fun for my students this holiday season!

You can start the game any way you choose, of course, but I am planning on introducing it this way:

You are now old enough to be a recruit as Santa's helpers.  He is especially busy this time of year getting things ready for Christmas and even his elves need help! So they turn to you.

Your job is to look at the present (the treble clef note card) and be able to identify which stocking (treble clef letter) it needs to go into.

If you are correct, the elves will congratulate you and another recruit (or team) will have a chance to get a present to the correct stocking.

If incorrect, the elves will encourage you to try again at the next house.

The teacher can keep score however they wish and whichever team has the most points at the end-- WINS!

I'm looking forward to playing this game with my kids and I hope yours will like it too!  Click on any of the pictures above to take you directly to this activity on Teachers Pay Teachers.


The Snowflakes Meet Their Match! A Solfege Game for Kodaly Classrooms

I created this matching game for So-Mi, So-La-Mi, and Do-Re-Mi a little while ago and wasn't very pleased with how it turned out. BUT. . .

Then I found some cute owl clip art, some lovely snowy background paper and changed up a few other things and I'm much more pleased with how these games look.

I think my classes will enjoy these games as described below and when I do Music Centers as the Memory Games I currently have are always among the most popular.

I've set this up so you can play this a few different ways.

Firstly, you could print, cut and laminate these as cute flashcards to do during the winter season.

Or, you could print cut and laminate the larger cards for yourself and enough copies of the smaller sets for your students that could be stored in little baggies when not in use.  Then, for example, you could show the word/letter cards and students could match the melody on the staff using either the line So/Do cards or the space So/Do cards.

You could also set this up as you regular Memory Game where you print a set of cards, cut, and laminate and students play as a memory game where they find the two melody cards that match.  Or you could have them match the staff cards with the word/letter cards.  Or you could have the match the line So/Do cards with the space So/Do cards.

The possibilities can go on and all from one set of cards!

I also included a bundled set that includes the So-Mi, So-Mi-La AND The Do-Re-Mi games all in one zipped file!

Hope these are useful to you this winter season!  Enjoy! :-)
