These activities and printables will help your students learn to sing!
These activities are all especially designed to help children learn to sing in solfege. Each activity is fast-paced and only take a few minutes to play, making them great for supplemental use during music lessons as well as a quick and fun way to reinforce music with your own children.
This 2-sided printable has beautiful colored solfege bubbles on one side to help your child sing "Mary had a Little Lamb" in solfege. When they are done, they get to turn the paper over and see a beautiful illustration complete with the traditional words. This is an awesome bedtime activity!
Make your own origami solfege cube using modular origami. These cubes are great for singing games, but cutting and folding the die is a fun activity by itself!
Use this printout to practice singing in solfege independent of a piano or other instrument. This activity is one of our more challenging ones, but with practice you'll be having lots of fun playing this game with your children.
These five printouts featuring popular childrens' songs have black-and-white solfege circles. Sing them alone or give them a splash of color with pom-poms, legos, buttons, or other colored manipulatives. Even better (and easier), you can color them with crayons and then take them to the piano to play and sing with our color-coded movable-do Piano Insert (included with purchase). Play in any key!
This gameboard is based on the traditional playground game of hopscotch, only this time it will be your brain doing gymnastics as you sing the scale up and down and start removing pitches from the scale. Play on a team or by yourself. You can even shake the origami solfege cube to determine which pitch to blot out (minus Ti, but that's okay, we like pink). There are lots of ways to adapt and play with this printable, depending on your needs and the imagination of your child.
These activities will help your child or student learn to sing in a fun and engaging way. The activities are:
