Looking for a fun piano composition activity for Christmas? Here’s one that will thrill your younger students and probably make you laugh until it hurts.
Why did Santa get stuck? Kids come up with hilarious answers! Send home a worksheet with each student and get ready to see some funny things come back. Kids write their reason for Santa’s sticky situation in the yellow box.
This worksheet is for kids who aren’t yet proficient at note reading. They can easily compose a song by writing finger numbers on the presents.
I love that this sheet allows you give kids extra practice working with their scales. I hope you teach pentascales to your young beginners and use activities like this to show them that they can create music in any key. In this case, select whichever scale you’re currently working on and ask the child to position her hand as if she were going to play that pentascale. Now compose a song using those keys and write the finger numbers on the gifts. Super easy, super fun, and super great practice with scales! It will also help kids begin to understand just how useful it will be to know their scales.
