Shamrock Note Crossword Puzzle

Crossword puzzle using letter in the music alphabet

Shamrock Music Crossword

So a while back, I got the great idea of making a crossword puzzle using words from the music alphabet. After all, I have a full set of music word flash cards and a lot of St. Patrick’s Day illustrations I’ve already made. It would be fun, I thought! So in the time I could have lost 10 pounds in the gym,  I made this.

I showed it to my student. “Mrs. Paradis”, my student kindly said, “I think you’ve done something wrong here.” One of the things with being a nice piano teacher is that the students are usually so kind and helpful. Not only had I spelled a word wrong, but I had the numbers wrong, too. Otherwise, he thought it was fun because he said he like word puzzles.

So I went back to the drawing board thinking how I could spell a three-letter word wrong. But then, spelling is not my best talent.

This is for older students because it has ledger lines. Using notes for words can be a little tricky for little ones. But for those of you who want something a little more challenging for the week of St. Patrick’s Day, you can try this.

Don’t forget you can save ink by putting this in a sheet protector and using an erasable marker. For those of you who download material to you iPad, I think it will work, because the squares for the letters are fairly large. I haven’t had time to try it yet.

Now that I know how to make crosswords, I want to make one for every holiday! I’ll use spell check next time.
