Musical Dice Game

Recently I introduced a new game to my 6-8 year old group lesson and they were so excited to share their rhythms the following week.

First we used the flash cards to lean and practice 1 beat rhythms. After they understood the concept I introduced the following game.

  1. The game is to roll the dice and write down the note/rest that you rolled. Each side of the dice is only worth 1 beat.
  2. Once you have written down the 4 bars you need to clap the rhythm.
  3. I laminated the worksheet so that it can be reused.

Instead of using a cardboard dice, I purchased small wooden blocks (after teaching the game to the students) and I drew the notes/rests on the sides of the blocks.
