Musical Signs and Symbols Flashcards - Set 2
Level: PreK/Early Elementary
By Helen Pace
Young students using Set 2 of Musical Signs and Symbols Flashcards build on the musical concepts and symbols they have learned with Set 1.
Set 2 is sorted into rhythm patterns in the first half and melodic patterns in the second half. Students enjoy practicing and exploring these patterns through learning activities such as:
- Moving with the rhythm or "shaping" melodic contours,
- Clapping rhythms and singing contours,
- Using/varying/combining the rhythmic or melodic patterns to create short phrases, musical stories, etc.
- Playing related musical flashcard games, and naming the symbols.
Soon, students will be ready to transition to reading symbols only on the cards' reverse sides.
As students progress, Sets 1 and 2 of Musical Signs and Symbols should be merged to provide a rich source of patterns with which students may practice and create.
