Flash card races will take place this week and next. Each student is timed for one minute, both saying and playing the note presented on flash cards. They can “pass” if taking too long.The goal is to recognize notes as quickly as possible.
I take the better score from two tries and give a prize to the winner of each of three categories: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
The “races” seem to make the students spend more time on the cards and increase their instant recognition of notes. And it’s fun to have a contest with rewards.
