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: http://laytonmusic.wordpress.com/2007/12/03/musical-yahtzee/
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, homeschoolden.com.
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, homeschoolden.com: 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:
