Halloween Music Games

Halloween Music Games Vol.1

I have been working hard on putting together a great resource just in time for Halloween.  The packet contains games that focus on rhythm, note recognition, keyboard recognition, key signatures and music concepts.

This packet contains great games focused around the spooky season of Halloween.  Teachers will love the "Witch's Spell," where kids are spellbound to perform rhythms in all kinds of wacky ways.  "Monster Tag" is a favorite for students.  They have so much fun, they forget their learning.  Other great games included are "Lonely Ghost," "Match the Cat" and "Don't Eat Jack!"

Canon Blast

Here some pictures I captured of a fun game we played this week:  "Canon Blast"

First I have students pick a color for their pirate ship.  I have magnetic chips, or "magic notes" in a variety of colors for the students to choose from.  I love using this magnetic chips, but any bingo chips will do.  Don't have bingo chips?  Try placing a colored sticker on a penny.  You will need at least 20 of each color.

Students identify their notes with flashcards and if they identify it correctly they get to put a chip on the matching ship.  "Fire Canon One"

For a quick game you can have the student win the ship by placing one chip on the ship.  For more teaching opportunities, make it three chips. Whoever has blasted the most ships wins!
