Music Vocabulary- Gotta Catch em All!

Word Wall Go
It's hot, it's hip, it's happening right now so it might be a great way to engage students in the classroom.  This concept is based on a "word wall" that will spark student interest while reinforcing the topic of the lesson.
My idea is to have the balls placed in various areas around the classroom prior to the students entering the room.  One of the balls would be in line with the "I can" statement written on the board.  At the end of the lesson, part of the Pokemon theme song would be played, "You teach me & I teach you! Pokemon! Gotta catch em all! Pokemon!"  This would be the cue for one student to catch (find) the vocabulary word that was part of the lesson and written on the ball.  They would then place it on the word wall.  Although this would not be used every time the students came to music class, it is a fun way to for this school year to get kiddos involved.
Please add to the comments any ideas to use with this template.
