Musical Memory is a set of fun memory/matching games to learn vocabulary words and symbols. This is level 5 of a memory game for music vocabulary words. Previously I posted levels 1-4.
Print the first page on sturdy card stock, being careful to set your printer to print page one only. After printing the first page, re-insert it into your printer to print the back of the cards, using the correct method for your printer. Please make certain you have your PDF printing settings to “no scaling” and you are using the latest version of Adobe Reader or you will get the egregious “black boxes” and other odd things. Laminate, if desired, and cut along the dotted lines.
If you have trouble printing backs to fronts correctly, and I have to admit it is confusing at times, there is a work-around. Print only the first page using colored card stock, cut out the cards, and put some cute stickers on the back of each card. Now you have a colorful game using your own stickers. You can even make it seasonal by using different holiday stickers such as pumpkins, turkeys, Christmas trees, or snowmen.
If you don’t print the backs of the cards, be sure to label the cards with their set number, if you use more than one set. Otherwise your cards from different sets will get mixed up.
To play, lay the cards out face down, 4 in each row. Players take turns turning 2 cards trying to match the definition with the correct word. If the words match, the student keeps the cards and gets a second turn. The object of the game is to collect the most cards, but the objective is to learn some new music vocabulary words. You can use this grid to help students keep the cards in the correct place. Musical Memory Grid
These words are one half of the vocabulary words students need to know for level 5 of the Texas theory test. Memory game 5B will be coming soon!
