Second grade students used class time to work on a variety of apps to aid in note reading skills.
Note Trainer is a class competition that we have held for the past few weeks. Resources in the room were available early on, and gradually taken away to help students be more proficient in their note identification skills. The competition wraps up this week and the winning class (highest percentage) will be rewarded with a Game Day in Music before the end of the year.
Silly Staff is a game that I invented to help with Note Reading and Notation. It is a fun team game that I actually use as a formative assessment. Participants notate the word, or read the notes and write the word. Their brains process the information in a different way. How they play tells me a lot! And meanwhile, they are having fun!
