Creepy Halloween Games

Sarah was this year’s first ” 2014 Skull Master” First she places the skulls on the correct piano key, then has to put them back on the tree–only naming them as enharmonics!

Delaney had to pick a key, based only on the number of sharps and flats. Then she made the key signature in both clefs with some creepy halloween characters. Finally, she had to pick a card with a scale degree, and name that scale degree of the key she was in.

Claire had to first pick a creepy card and place a pumpkin on the correct piano key. When she was done with the first half of the game, I called out the names of each note. She transferred that note from the pumpkin patch on the keyboard to its correct place on the music staff.

12 Creepy Days of Halloween

IMG_6995

Grace and Sarah did a great job singing the 12 Days of Halloween!

In this game, students match the words of the 12 Creepy Days of Halloween to a rhythmic pattern. Grace did a great job and matched them all up perfectly. Then she recruited Sarah to help her sing the words! Having piano friends is so much fun!

Creepy Enharmonics

Some of my students have really been enjoying this creepy Halloween game of skeletons where I show them a music flashcard and they pick a skull from the tree to place it on the corresponding piano key. The flashcards use only sharps, flats, double sharps, and double flats. When all the skulls are on the piano keys, the student must finally name each key using ONLY enharmonic names for each in order to become the Skull Master!
