4+yo Jae is learning about musical notes, so I adapted this idea from Vee’s previous teacher.
- A4 card stock: cut into 8 pieces each
- write note on each card, using thick rounded-tip black marker pen (you may use red too)
- make 2 or 4 of each note so that you can play games (clap / hit with sticks / say rhythm aloud etc.) E.g. tahn – tahn – tahn – shh
- use a library card holder to hold the cards
I’ve no music background and often get the full / half rests mixed up, so I need to write the names behind the cards for self-checking.
It takes me only several minutes to whip these cards up. Much faster than using a computer.
Best of all, the kids love them!
