It's the I spy a music note star gazing game! I had purchased these awesome star wands at the Dollar Tree last school year and was wondering what to use them for inside the music room. Well, I decided that I would use them with my small special education kinder class. Using a large piece of butcher paper, I drew pictures of music notes all over the paper making sure to have enough of each note for every student. In addition, I made a set of cards each with a picture of each note on the page. We turned the stack of cards to face down and each student took turns to pick and show the top card of the deck. Then the students would find and place the window of the star to show the note. Once each student found the matching note, we would then tap out the number of beats for that particular note. Truly a win win! The students were able to locate the music note and focus specifically on that note. It also helped the students to practice counting too. Another fun way to use these stars
