More Whole Note, Half-Note, Quarter-Note Games

This is the second post about how I introduced the kids to quarter notes, half notes, whole notes, etc.  Be sure to visit the first post:

Introducing Quarter Notes, Half Notes and Whole Notes 

Here are some games that are set to go, but that we have
not yet played together. I'm sharing it now, though, along
with my other music-related resources.

Move forward the value of the note you pick up (thus, a
half-note moves forward 2 spaces, a quarter note moves
forward 1 space, a whole note moves ahead 4 spaces, etc.)

I made the die with a different note (quarter, half, dotted-half, whole note and eighth note) on each side. Musical Yahtzee Sheets are from here:

UPDATE, Fall 2015:
My youngest is now 7 and this semester the kids will be learning/reviewing notes, rhythm, music notation and more.  Using a lot of free resources, I have put our Music Curriculum plans together into a 8-week plan (it might take us longer) that is a free download over at my new location,
The packet is 15 pages or so AND it has hyperlinks to many *amazing* free music resources (including the ones I show below and dozens more!).  Again, you will find that new post over at my new location,  Free Beginner's Music Curriculum: Learning Notes, Rhythm, Music Notation and more   See you there! ~Liesl

 You'll find links to lots of the different games and activities we'll be using:

  1. I stumbled upon your Musical Yahtzee idea and I think it's brilliant! Quick question about the dice, though. There are 6 sides to a die and you only have five notes. Do you just double up on a different note on each of the dice, or do you add a different symbol/note? Thanks for the clarification!
