  2. Play Fine throughout the above steps so they can practice and you can see that they understand. When to play it is marked with (Play Fine).


Classroom Ideas: I like to reserve tempo and symbol games for lessons where I might have an extra 5 minutes at the end.  It’s a great way to fit in an introduction of tempos that can be repeated in a follow up class, or introduction of a few new symbols. It’s often in my plans as an “Extended Activity”.  Just make sure to return to it in the next class or two.
