An Easter Game

Egg halves of the same color have the wrong answer.

There are so many wonderful blogs online with so many wonderful ideas for playing games. I have really accumulated many of these games thanks to the thoughtfulness and creativity of the teachers who come up with them. I just wish I had the time to be so creative. Seasonal games are fun for the students and the Easter Egg matching game is one I made for my students recently. I made up 3 of these games in total- each uses a different level of difficulty depending on the level of the student

The students love these games and they take just 2-5 minutes at the beginning of a lesson. A good friend and colleague told me that what she remembered most about her first piano teacher was that he played a game with her at the end of every lesson. What a nice memory to have!
I got this idea from a pre-school website that matched a series
 of dots to the cooresponding number using easter eggs.
Instead, I used the eggs to match 3 different
 levels of commonly used piano vocabulary.

Here is the original website photo.
