Playing the Bells

Every night I try to set up something for the girls and I call it "The Daily Challenge".  Really it just gives me a few extra minutes of blessed sleep since we decided to get rid of the TV this summer.  On a scale of 1 -10 I give this an 8 since I was able to sleep in till 7:30!

I have hanging on the wall a pocket chart that I filled with the colored circles that coordinate with the bells.  The challenge this morning was to figure out what song I had set up for them.  I made quite a few extra colored circles so that when they had finished and found the answer they would then be able to create their own song.

I can't take the credit for this one, although we do a similar activity in our music program.  The girls pre-K teacher set up a similar station during music week and when I saw how she had them creating their own music with the colors I knew I had to still this idea.


  1. Is it Twinkle Twinkle? I just tried to sing the colors in my head LOL! Such a cool idea, and I am so glad you are blogging about this year's activities, I had a blast reading them last year!

  2. Yes it is! Glad you like it, I'm having fun too.
