music with origami

My 5-year-old has recently discovered origami, and there is nothing she loves to fold more than the “Cootie Catcher”, also known as the “Fortune Teller”. In our home, they are called the “Go-There-Square”, thanks to Sam and Stella.  She loves to make these and to write her own text in them.  They are a lot of fun to work with!  And I, being the mother that I am, wondered how I could give this love an educational application.  It turns out there are many other teachers and homeschoolers who have done the same and it was a lot of fun for me to explore the templates that have been made- math, grammar, science, art, you name it.  Today I want to add my own twist and give you a couple of printouts that I made.  They can be used as flashcards, for game-play, as a toy, or any other use you come up with.  I’d love to know how you use them- please comment!

About the author 


My name is Tamsyn and I love music. I got my bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from USU. I spent many years teaching private piano lessons until I had children of my own. I have attended several children workshops on how to teach children music. I really like the Kodaly method, but have adapted a lot of different techniques for my own children.
