DIY - Treble Clef Toss Game

Learning about music

Games to learn how to read music

Here's a simple yet fun game that is great to use during center time. This game was made from materials that were on campus; large piece of bulletin board paper, tape, beans (left over from a sound unit project) and cloth.  

The instructions for the game are located on the back side of the game name plate.  In addition, a treble clef staff with the names of each line and space are written on a piece of paper with the point values.  This is to help kiddos who are unsure about the names of the notes, and does not interfere with the students who might already know.

Students keep score on a dry erase board, and the one with the most points at the end wins.  This game is great to reinforce addition skills, as the students must not only say the letter name on the staff, but add up the point value to give their score to the score keeper.
It is easy breezy treble clef fun!
