These cards are therefore a supplement til my head joint melodies. The cards can be used in several fun ways and you are welcome to find your own ways to use the them.
This set consists of:
- Game cards with animals in 2 sizes. The large animals is a long sound and the small animals are two short sound.
- A blank page so that your students can draw small and large drawings themselves
- Game cards with head joint symbols. The last line is only with a flute so you can write your own ideas for sounds.
- Pictures of flute teachers from all over the world.
Print them double-sided and you have backside on all of your cards.
Once you have printed all the cards, you can laminate them for longer durability.
How to use the cards:
- Lay all the cards on the table face up and let your students choose which cards to use. You can, for example, let them choose 8 cards and with the 8 cards you can make many different melodies.
- Lay the cards face up and let your students choose a certain number of cards. You can possibly take turns drawing a card.Now choose whether you want to play the melody in the order the cards have been selected or whether you want to choose to make many different melodies with the cards.
- Choose 6 cards from the deck with the animals on and 6 cards from the deck with the head joint sounds on. Give them each a number from 1 - 6. Find a dice and now roll the dice once for each pile. Place the cards in the order determined by the dice and play your melody at the end.
