Blue Jello Cards
The blue jello cards - set 1 are used to teach a fun vocabulary of rhythmic words for reading rhythms, writing rhythms, understanding note and rest values and notating compositions. They are also used to play games and can be used alone or in combination with the big blue jello cards - set 1. They contain a sequence of 58 patterns designed for beginning music students or those new to Music Mind Games concepts. There are several guide cards for learning the Blue Jello words, hand signs and drawings. Like all Music Mind Games materials, the blue jello cards are not used as flash cards. Instead, they are read together, and students learn by imitating the pronunciation, steady beat, and tempo of their teacher's voice.

The blue jello cards can be used independently and in combination with real rhythm cards (spring 2011), blue jello word cards, magic notes and magic wands. Blue jello cards can be used to play such games as: Blue Jello Cards, Blue Jello Dominos, Blue Jello Bingo, Blue Jello Tic Tac Toe, Note and Rest Hunt and Double Bar Sit Down.
When used with games from the book Music Mind Games, these cards help all levels of students:
- learn the difference between a note and a rest
- learn a fun vocabulary to read single notes, rests and note groupings
- learn to keep a steady beat when reading rhythms
- learn a vocabulary to identify rhythms by listening
- learn the relative values of basic notes and rests
- learn to divide notes and rests into measures
- learn hand signs to understand how notes and rests are drawn and increase finger dexterity
- read musical scores with confidence
- prepare for games using rhythm bingo cards, blue jello word cards, rhythm playing cards and notes and rests cards
Key Features of the Cards:
- The Blue Jello hand signs provide kinesthetic learning
- Each new note or rest is introduced one at a time. The new note or rest first appears on one card in context with previously learned notes and rests. The next card features only the new note or rest. This sequence is followed by several cards with the new note or rest and previously learned notes and rests.
- Colored borders help students stay focused
- The centers of each card are white so they are easier to read
- The pacing and sequence of the patterns is well thought-out
- Cards have various numbers of beats so when time signatures are learned, one meter doesn’t feel “more correct” than another one
List Price: $15.50
