Second graders have been working on learning how to read a musical score. They have been practicing tracking the music and following the musical "road map." To help us with these skills, we have been working on a unit of "Musical Terms." They learned many Italian musical words and symbols that they may come across in their score-reading. Our focus words were: piano, forte, repeat sign, fermata, coda, crescendo, decrescendo, legato, and staccato.
With all of these new terms, we needed a way to practice! I used a template that I found online and created a Musical Terms Fortune Teller. Remember those? I used to make these all the time in elementary school. :) I was excited to find out that some of the students knew how to make them as well! Each flap of the fortune teller has a musical symbol on it and underneath the flap is the definition. The students had so much fun playing the review game with their partners!
Here's a great video tutorial if you'd like to try one yourself!
