Finally.. spoon matching game.. CHECK!

I've been wanting to get this one done for a while. Thanks to pinterest- someone had the brilliant idea to use clear spoons and white (or colored) ones to work on lower case and upper case letter matching. For us music folks, the idea was easily adapted to notes and note values. I got some done today and I think it will work well as a center! My school is in the process of buying ipads for me and the art teacher to share- FIVE! Woot Woot!! So.. am going to incorporate some centers starting in January. One of these will include the spoons. Once students have determined the correct rhythm value, they could use one of the rhythm grids I've seen on Mrs King Rocks' blog- check her out- awesome ideas (!), then they could compose and perform rhythms. Another one done... CHECK!

  1. I love the idea of using these spoons as a preview to a composition project. I think I might try this with my 3rd graders later this year. We have been learning about time signatures and this would be a great review of note values, bar lines, etc.

  2. Glad you like them- I thought there were so many uses! All the materials are available at Dollar Tree and it takes less than 5 minutes to make these! Fun!
