Musical Notes

This is a great activity to use when your students are beginning to learn about the value of notes and rests. Make large cutouts using heavy black paper of the different kinds of notes and rests (ie. whole note, half note, quarter note, whole rest, half rest, quarter-rest) and laminate them. Divide a bulletin board in half horizontally. Use the top half for fill-in-the-blanks. Construct fill-in-the-blank equations in the form of:

Which combinations of notes add up to a whole note?

Show one way to make a complete measure in 4/4 time.

Your students will use the laminated notes to complete the questions. Use velcro stripping to attach. On the bottom half of the board draw a stanza where your kids can make their own song and practice playing it with simple instruments, mini drums, or simply by clapping their hands. Share these with the class.
