Things you will need:
- Your handy scale blocks
- This printable gameboard, created by yours truly
- Leprechaun coins
Note: My Leprechaun coins are not actually from Leprechauns. (Shh! Don't tell my students!) They are actually sequins - 20mm gold sequins created by Darice to be specific. You can, of course substitute whatever you wish, but do not attempt to make Leprechaun coins by painting a bag of small wooden disks with gold acrylic paint. I may have tried this, and I may have lived to regret it.
1. Decide which of the following notes you want to reinforce:
- Treble Clef Lines
- Treble Clef Spaces
- Bass Clef Lines
- Bass Clef Spaces
3. Have students draw from the scale blocks, and place their Leprechaun coins on the corresponding rainbow lines or spaces. (i.e. If you decide to reinforce treble clef lines, and the student draws a "B" block, they will place the coin on the third line of the rainbow. Conversely, if you've decided to reinforce bass clef spaces and the student draws a "B" block, they should throw it back in the box and draw another.) Clear as mud?
4. The first line or space to reach the pot of gold (or the line or space with the most coins when time is up) "wins."
