This is a super fun (yet truly educational!) game where students race to the finish line by naming solfege notes! Options include moveable Do starting in a variety of places, fixed Do, and Curwen hand signs! Use in your daily lessons, as part of center or music workstation activities, or as a great sub plan!
In the game, each student will draw a card and identify the pitch on the card. Then, they can move their game piece (provided by you – see here for examples or use pony beads!) to the appropriate pitch name. There are also some “game” cards like “Wreck: Skip Your Turn!”
Your students will LOVE playing this game in Centers or as a stand-alone activity! You will verbally hear them calling out the names of the notes as the move forward and check each other.
