So, when she took a really long nap I worked on some melodic and rhythmic reading practice cards. I wanted something that I could use that's "cute and seasonal" but not be tied down to "Christmas" and also not overlook any of the other holidays that are going on right now.
That made me think of presents and name-tags. So, I made a rhythm matching version of the game and made the cards progressively more difficult, from ta ti-ti to ti-tom. Some day I WILL get to tim-ka but that won't be until next year (and this game, rhythmically, is a little too simple for that concept- in my opinion). The general idea is to cut the cards on the dotted lines and each concepts will have 4 presents and 4 tags. They must match the gift tag to the present. Here are a couple examples:
These can be found at my Teachers Pay Teachers store: rhythm game and melody game. Be on the look out for a free PowerPoint of "Auld Lang Syne," coming in the next few days to my store (don't worry, I'll blog about it too!)
