Musical Spelling Bee
This week our local newspaper showcased an area middle school student who had made it to the regional spelling bee for the first time and was excited to follow in his sister's footsteps, as she had participated in it for the past four years. This gave me the idea to create a Musical Spelling Bee sheet for students to give them a way to review their note names in a way that would be relevant to them during "spelling bee season" at school. There are many words that can be spelled using only the letters of the music alphabet, and Music Matters Blog offers a list containing many great words as well as a unique and fun spelling bee idea to use in the group lesson setting! Here is the spelling bee sheet I created. Clipart courtesy of Public Domain Clipart.
