A great lesson idea on teaching the Staff, using Twister
4, 3, 2, 1
Music: Staff Twister
by Patti Morin
Objective: To learn the names of the lines and spaces.
Materials: Masking Tape
Make a staff on the floor. I find a distance of approx. 12″ works fine for grades K-4. Several children play at one time. I call out either right or left hand randomly and the children put their hands or feet on the corresponding line or space. The more difficult the more fun they have!
I have used the same staff to teach and identify chords.
