Counting Up the Mountain

Counting up the Mountain

Counting Up the Mountain is a game for students who are just learning the rhythmic value of whole, dotted half, half, and quarter notes in 4/4 time. The teacher holds up a card or the student draws a card and moves 4 places for whole notes, 3 places for dotted half, and so on. It’s a quick game the teacher or parent can play with the student or several beginners can play together. As I said on my website, you can make up a lot of ways to play this game. If you want to use my cards, they are on the website right below the game. [Edited: This is the revised version and also includes more difficult cards to add up and move the correct number. Also, optional backs are included in the file.]
