How to Play:

Select a set of songs to introduce for the first time or that you’d like to review. This activity is perfect for the first lesson plan of the year or to practice all of your Program songs!

Challenge the children to see how many gold medal trophies they can earn by guessing all the song titles!

Start by playing only note. Is enough? Do they want to guess or add another note?

Play 2 notes and take guesses. If they need it, keep adding notes until they can name the song!

When they’ve guessed the song sing through it together! As a bonus, you can then have the children rate the song as a love it, like it, or still thinking about its rating.

5 More Fun Ways to Play!

Song Titles: To simplify the challenge, bring in all the song titles so the children have a bank of songs to choose from. You can include some extra song titles, if desired, so it’s not TOO easy.

Child Pianist: Encourage one of your Primary children that are learning to play the piano to assist you! This would be a fun way to give your pianist a day off. You can use the simplified I Can Play It sheet music.

Roll a Dice: Roll a 6-sided dice to determine a random selection of how many notes to play! If they don’t get it on the first few guesses, roll again and add that many additional notes! For an easier challenge, roll 2 dice and add the number of notes together.

Kid Numbers: Let the children pick a number for how many notes to try. Do they want to go for gold, try for silver, or make it easy to guess on the first try?

Leveled Clues: Add one mini hint for each level (gold, silver, and blue). Such as a common keyword or theme of the song. Try humming the notes to help them “hear” those first few notes in a different way.
