Good Morning SFO! I’m back in town and am resuming posting today!
Thanks to Angie Gonzalez for this post today!
I like to review the musical alphabet often because there are always new students in our rooms and
going back to activities that have been learned already is welcome by students.
Every student needs a deck of the seven letters of the musical alphabet.
1. Ask the children to put the letters in order beginning in different letters. It reinforces the movement from G to A.
2. Ask the children to put the letters in 3rds. Allow time for them to figure it out. Play the notes on a bell, if it is available.
I don’t have bells so I bring a student to the piano.
3. Ask the children to put the letters in 4th, 5th and so on.
This activity reinforces chord development. It is also a higher thinking activity because it involves letters and numbers.
Plus it is a great game.
I play it by asking them to raise their hands when they are done and reward the first ones.
Do you have a good way to review or teach the musical alphabet?
