Today I am posting a music worksheet and game to identify notes around middle C. I plan to use it as a coloring sheet to send home in their binder because I don’t have time to do this at a lesson. However, I think students might enjoy cutting it out after they color it. With Mom or Dad’s help they can put the pieces back together as they name the notes.
Make it a Game!
Another way to use this printable is to make it an activity for a group lesson or for a home school music lesson. Color the colored sections as indicated. Cut along the black lines and put the puzzle pieces in a bowl. Students draw puzzle pieces one at a time and try to be the first one to put the egg back together. If they draw a note they already have, they have to put it back. Students can stick the piece down with double-sided tape. This game requires fine motor skills, so students need to old enough for fine cutting. This would be fun craft and game for a music camp.
I use inexpensive double-sided tape that is a lot less messier than glue, so you might want to pick some up.
- To reinforce note names around middle C
- All elementary age children who have learned the notes around middle C
- Crayons (brown can be substituted for pink)
If cutting out and using as a puzzle, you need these materials:
- Double sided tape or glue
- Colored construction paper as the background to stick down the puzzle
I have received so many nice emails and comments lately. Thank you so much! Sometimes my readers find mistakes and let me know about them. I appreciate that, too, because I am not a very good proof-reader!
