Reverse Spell-a-Staff Note Name Game

This is the reversed version of the note naming game I posted last week. In this version the player draws music words on blank staff cards.

Game for grand staff note naming practice

Each word card has either a treble clef or bass clef on the back, to designate where the notes should be drawn. If you want a student to just practice on or the other – just tell them to ignore that bit. ­čśë

Gameplay

For 1 player

  • Set a countdown for 2 minutes.
  • Pick cards at random from the bag and write the word in the space on the card.
  • Write as many words as you can! When the 2 minutes are up double check that the cards are correct, then count them.
  • Try to beat your score next time.

For 2-4 players

  • Set a countdown for 2 minutes.
  • Pick cards at random from the bag and write the word in the space on the card.
  • Write as many words as you can! When the 2 minutes are up double check that the cards are correct, then count them.
  • The player with the most correct cards wins.

Assembly Instructions

  • Download the Reverse Spell-a-Staff pdf.
  • The title page and the instructions page are optional.
  • Pages 3-10 should be printed double sided, so the clefs are on the back of the cards.
  • The final page should be printed lots of times, depending on how many students you want to participate. I recommend 5 copies (that’s 2o cards) per student.
  • Cut apart the cards and you’re ready to go! If you want to reuse the game lots of times, laminate the staff cards and use dry erase markers.
