This past week was “Duck Week” in my studio. About once a month I do a themed week with a special learning game and I try to make one game work for each age and level.
I found this cute duck game here:
I also used these duck cut outs
to make flashcards for the game. Students would correctly identify the symbol, note or chord I’d written on the card and then then could take a turn catching a duck. He with the most ducks won an extra cheese quacker, i mean, cracker! I bought packages of ritz crackers that have cheese in them. They are ridiculously yummy! For example, a baby beginner set of flashcards had just the letters A-G and a fancy f and p (for forte and piano) and the most
complicated set I made had I-IV-V and major vs. minor chords. You can also laminate the cards if you’re worried they’ll get wet! Here’s a cheap laminator…In My Humble Opinion any laminator works as well as the next! you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars! Here is a $30 laminator
or this one which is $20.
A simple 5 minutes that reinforces learning and makes you a really cool teacher!
