Lucky Charms: Timed Note-Reading

Lucky Charms: Timed Note-Reading


Test your note-reading abilities this St. Patrick’s Day with our Lucky Charms Timed Note-Reading Test! 


What you’ll need for this activity:

  • Lucky Charms Timed Note-Reading Test Page
  • Dice 
  • Pencil
  • Stopwatch or timer of some kind


Set up all your supplies in front of you. Start the stopwatch and then roll the dice! The number you roll is the path of lucky charms you should follow. Write the name of each note below the horseshoe. How fast can you complete the line? Roll the dice again to choose another line of lucky charms to name. How fast can you complete the whole page?


This game uses the notes F, G, A, B, C and D on the treble staff.
