- Quarter Note

Quarter Note: Without removing the whole note and half note, place another whole note to the right of the half note and together say “whole note”. Add the stem and together say “half note”.



Push a center into the note head of the half note and say “quarter note”. Then say “quarter note” together.



Beginning with the student who didn’t get a puzzle piece on the last round, pass these six pieces, one at a time around the circle. As needed, guide them gently to recreate the same three notes as before. Remember that this is a teaching game and not a memory game.

Together, everyone says, "Whole note. Whole note, half note. Whole note, half note, quarter note" as each note is formed.

“Well done. You’re working well together.” If someone adds a puzzle piece out of order, gently toss it back to her.
