Music Spelling - Bunny Edition

My 4th graders really enjoyed using the St. Patrick's Day Music Spelling game.  It was a nice opportunity for me to assess their progress as well.  I decided to create a second, similar activity, this one with an Easter-theme.  Here's, Music Spelling - Bunny Edition.

There are twelve bunnies.  I've made them tall enough that the students can place the corresponding basket on top, without covering the letters.  That way, when I'm checking, I can see both the word and the basket and assess their work quickly.  I have the students lay out the bunnies in two rows of six (nice and neat) and match the baskets one by one on top.

Before they complete this activity, we go through a PowerPoint game together, where the students must read six patterns on the eggs (like the one below) in order to help the Easter Bunny collect them back in his basket.


I also created a composition follow-up activity.  The students cut out the four eggs and use them to spell a word on the staff.
