Music Spelling - Sports Edition
So, I created this little activity with my 4th and 5th grade boys in mind. We are always talking about football, and, like most boys, they are very "sportsie".
For game-play, you have a few options:
1. Individual: The students completes the activity alone (fun way to assess)
2. Pairs: One student times the other as they complete the activity. Then they switch jobs. The goal is to be the fastest.
3. Small Group: Students each receive their own sport (my classes are large, so I have two working on the same sport) to complete as a group. They can switch sports within the group when they finish.
In addition to the four sets of sports, I created this review sheet called "Clutch Time". The students write a word comprised of the letters ABCDEFG in each box, then draw it on the staff with quarter notes.
