Christmas Pieces FlashcardI’m always looking for a good way to help my students do well on melodic dictation.  At our most recent group lesson, I used these Christmas Pieces Flashcards for a “Challenge!” game. 

This is how we played:

Two teams lined up behind a table.  The first person in both lines put their hands behind their back and stood in front of a table with a call bell in the middle.  I showed them a Christmas Tune Flashcard and the first person to ring the bell with the correct answer earned a point for their team.

Some of the tunes were difficult for the students, so I told them their team members could help them by clapping the rhythm or quietly helping them sing the tune.  The kids had fun and the game became more of a team effort than an individual one, which is often more exciting for the group lesson.

Please help others by sharing this. Thanks!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestEmail this to someone
