The Big Book of Games - English (letters)
When teaching small flutists in a group, it is really nice to have a lot of activities and games they can either do separately, if you need to spend time with one student alone or games they can all play together in the group . Most students love to play and by using the games, one can get around the many different learning styles.
On the Youtube channel "Minfloejtebog" you can find videos with suggestions on how to play all the games. You can find QR codes for all the videos on the following pages.
This book consists of more than 17 activities and games you can do with your students. The task set consists of clip cards and twist-around-games you can let the students sit with alone in peace as well as games you can play together in small groups or the whole group together. You can make your own pinwheel or the frog that sometimes wants to jump.
Some games are fast, some all have to be played together against a common enemy and one game just has completely unfair rules. You are of course welcome to play the games exactly as it suits you and your students.
Once everything is printed, it is an advantage to laminate many of the elements. Some things are smartest to write on before laminating, other things you can laminate and then write on with a marker. That way, you can quickly adjust the pieces to suit the group of students you have.
Have fun with the activities!
