I'm starting lessons off this month with a fun note challenge! Over the month of February, students will be seeing how many hearts they can earn.
I'm using Susan Paradis's cute Valentine Notes worksheet as well as her Steal a Heart cards for the challenge. Each student is timed for one minute. As I show them one of the heart cards they have to:
1. Name the note
2. Play the note
3. Place a candy piece on the correct note on the Valentine Note sheet
After the minute is up, we count up how many candies they've earned, and they draw the correct number of hearts on this simple chart I created. They also get to keep the candy!
As you can see on the chart, we'll be tracking all through February, and the student who gets the most hearts will get a special prize. Not to mention candy every week!
What kinds of fun seasonal activities are you doing for February?!
