Thankyou for the great downloads of My First Piano Adventures character posters. Today I am using them in a 'musical chairs' style game. The student walks around the laminated posters on the floor while tapping the beat with claves to 'Friends At The Piano' CD on repeat. When I pause the music a poster is chosen, leaving Mrs Razzle Dazzle until last, and the student taps the name syllables eg one tap for 'Tap', two for Car-los and Blink-er etc. After each pause a poster is removed until only Mrs Razzle Dazzle remains. Student then copies my rhythms - the seven Secret Message rhythms from page 6 of Writing Book A. Now on my teacher wish list I have an instrumental only version of 'Friends At The Piano' for such games! smile
