Here is a new game to help teach/reinforce note reading.
Small poster board or other heavy paper
Twizzlers Pull Apart Candy
Dum Dum Lollipops
Ways To Play:
For group lessons: After making a staff and bass/treble clef using the Twizzlers, have the student(s) place lollipops on notes you specify.
For each note they properly place, they get to eat the lollipop or save it for after the lesson
For private lessons: You can have the board completely set up with staff, clef, and notes made of lollipops and skittles. Then have each student choose a lollipop or skittle they want at the end of their lesson. They get to eat it ONLY IF they can correctly name the note.
This game can also be used to help students identify note on lines or spaces.
For more advanced students you can have them play the melody built by the notes for a bonus take home bag of candy.
