Our awesome pianist (and my AMAZING friend) Michelle gave me this great idea:
- Get a long piece of white paper (like butcher paper size). Draw the lines of the staff on it and the Treble Cleff (like below, but wider).
- Cut out a variety of large notes from black construction paper - half notes, whole notes, quarter notes, etc.
- Laminate all.
Then, as part of singing time, let the kids take turns picking a note to put on the staff! Each time, have the pianist play what they've written so far. By the end of singing time they should have created their very own song!
