Music Note Twister

I wish I could remember who had originally given me this idea but all I can say for now is that it isn't my original idea.  I played this game during the last few weeks of school as a center.  My classroom was in disarray because of performances and I had to quickly come up with something that would keep the kids engaged but we could do with limited resources (i.e. instruments).


This center worked with 2-5 students.  The rules are the same as regular Twister except for using the colors.  Instead of calling out a color, students had to call out the note name the spinner had landed on.  This is a great game to help reinforce note names.

  2. Centers are a great way for the kids to take control of their learning. They can be a bit overwhelming at first but I'm glad to hear you are going to give them a try!

  3. This is GENIUS. I think I would find a way to use visa vis markers on them so that I could erase the material and use it to teach different concepts. Different rhythms, maybe even pictures of piano keys or chords (I do Little Kids Rock so we use those things a lot). Amazing.
