Now, on the trip to Chicago I did have time to work on a game that I have had in my head for a while. My dear friend, Tanya LeJeune, blogged about her Tika-tika Tic Tac Toe game last year. I have made electronic versions of the game that can be used via PowerPoint Now, I haven't played around with it yet, but my understanding is that you can also use them on an iPad via SlideShark. (On my to-do list to try out).
Each file comes with SIX versions of the game for that specific element: red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple. Each game within each file uses the same patterns, but they're placement on the game board is different for each game. Now, the melodic files actually contain TWELVE games: six in stick notation and six in staff notation.
Here's a stick notation sample:
Here's the main game board.
When you click on a number, it brings you to a slide. If the choosing team performs the pattern correctly, they get that box, if not the other team gets the box. When you return to the game board (but clicking on the star-like icon in the lower right hand corner, you get the choice of making that box an "X" or an "O".
Here are a couple more stick notation samples:
Here's a couple staff notation samples (different game, this is from the la game):
- ta ti-ti
- quarter rest
- Melodic Bundle
- Rhythmic bundle- COMING SOON!
