Catching Bugs-Learning C and G

When working with very young students I have found it beneficial to drill just a few notes at a time.  I like to make sure a student knows a few notes well before adding more notes. So I decided to design games with just the notes I wanted to drill.  Some of these games are designed to correspond to what students are learning in their method books, while some of the games I designed were for a student who was struggling with a particular ‘set’ of notes..


I personally enjoy using a combination of  landmark notes and intervals to teach reading.  Catching Bugs was designed to drill the important landmark notes of middle C and landmark G .

I like to use gems to cover the bugs when they draw the corresponding note.  You can find colored gems such as these at any craft store.  For full instructions please download the file. Make sure you print the game files in Landscape mode. Enjoy!
