[Updated: To make it easier, all the Animal Alphabet Search & Find pages are now in two bundles. Bass B to treble G are in bundle one, and Bass C up to A (below middle C) are in bundle two. There are 12 pages total.]
Here is the latest Search and Find Game that I hope you will find useful this summer or later on if you are not teaching now. Today’s game features the frog from Frogs Wearing Flip Flops.
This is the fourth in a series of “Search and Find” games. A few days ago I posted Search and Find Middle C, Search and Find D, and Search and Find E.
This game is for young beginners who are just starting to learn notes on the staff. To play the game, give the student some bingo tokens, such as the ones that go with a magnetic bingo chips wand, and ask them to cover all the F’s as quickly as they can. It’s a simple game that doesn’t take much time, but it has really helped my student.
Do you find it helpful for me to post objectives to activities? I always write objectives for each activity I make because in the very limited time we have in piano, every minute counts! Plus, I think it helps if we share the objectives with parents.
- Search and Find F (free printable in the link above)
- Magnetic bingo chips to use with a magnetic wand, or other game tokens you have on hand
- Print the game board
- Place bingo chips next to the game board
- Instruct the student to find and cover all the F’s
Directions for other ways to use the game
- Play using a timer and make it a game to see how fast the student can cover the F’s.
- Laminate the game board or place into a sheet protector and let the students circle the F’s with a dry erase marker.
- Print a copy for the student’s binder and ask the student to circle all the F’s with their favorite color crayon.
- Hand the student note flash cards (such as the Fly Flash Cards) one at time. If the card is a F, they cover it with a bingo chip. After they see the card, they give it back so you will have enough F’s to cover them all.
- To learn how to visually identify middle F on the staff
- To improve fine motor skills in the fingers by picking up the small game tokens
- Preschool and early elementary ages
