Summer Fun Music Vocabulary

Summer Fun Music VocabularyB&W

Well, at least I tried to make it fun!  The one with the words in the center is an activity my students love for me to make. There are lots of words of summer activities mixed up with theory vocabulary, and students circle all the music words. If you have time, on the back they can group the words into categories, like dynamics or rhythm. You might want a music dictionary handy.

I made black and white as well as color versions. As a reminder, if you only use this with one student at a time, teachers often put it in a sheet protector to use with wet or dry erase markers. That makes it easy to store in a binder. Other teachers like the B&W versions because students like to color them and they cost much less to print.

I made these as a summer activity and since we have a few more weeks of summer, I hope you can use them! I also think you can use them as a back to lessons/school activity.

They are all free downloads and match the series of  Summer Treats Activities  that I’ve made so much material for over the years.

If you are looking for a game with vocabulary words, check out Music Memory Level 5B as well as all the levels here. Students really like memory matching games.

Summer Treats Funsheet for Beginners

Cherry Popsicles Funsheet

Cherry Popsicles Black & White

Does anyone remember a few years back when I posted some music worksheets with a “Summer Treats” theme? Well, I’ve always planned on adding more to that series, so here is a new one.  This is for an average age beginner to learn some of the basics of piano. And I even made a black and white version that students can color.

I plan to add more to the Summer Treat set of worksheets, so check back. I found some in my files that I’ve never shared!

[Ed: Here are some I’ve made since this post.]

Blackberry Sherbet Dotted Quarter Notes

Candy Bar Lines (contains simple 8th notes)

The sheets I posted previously are for students who already know notes and rhythms. If you want to download them, I’m reposting them here for your convenience.

Save the Turkey Game – Set 2

Half steps and more

Save the Turkey Set 2

In my last post I mentioned that I would post more  cards for the Save the Turkey Game. This set has a few more notes to identify and some more terms. My students have been enjoying this game. It is so easy to set up and play and doesn’t take much lesson time.

For directions to play please see read my previous post. You can find it here.  I did not include the back of the cards in this PDF. If you want to print backs to these cards, set your PDF printing setting to Page 2 when you print the back. If you don’t want to print backs, I suggest you use some cute stickers on the back of the cards.

Hint: I printed this set on a different color of card stock than the first set so I can keep the levels separate. Or, you could combine the two sets.

Does anyone want another level? I have one but I don’t know if it’s too late to post this year.

Enjoy!

Musical Memory Game 5B

Musical Memory Game 5B

Musical Memory Game 5B

I’ve finally found time to post the second half of the vocabulary words to the 5th level of the Musical Memory Game. The cards for the first half of the words (which I call level 5A) were posted last week and can be found here. Feel free to mix words and symbols from different levels to suit the needs of your students.

Print the first page on sturdy card stock, being careful to set your printer to print page one only. After printing the first page, re-insert the page  into your printer to print the back of the cards, using the correct method for your printer.

To play, lay the cards out face down, 4 in each row. Two players take turns turning the cards to match the word with the definition. If the words match, the student keeps the cards and gets a second turn.  The object of the game is to collect the most cards, but the objective is to learn some new music vocabulary words. These words are one half of the vocabulary words students need to know for level 5 of the TMTA theory test.

It is not necessary to print the back of the cards to play the game, but if you don’t, be sure to label them so the sets will not get mixed up. The other sets can be found by typing in Musical Memory Game in the search tab on the right, or doing a Google search: Susan Paradis Musical Memory Game.
