Music Fortune Teller

 A Music Fortune Teller is a great way to review musical concepts learned. 

If you have forgotten how to play, here is a link that describes in detail how to fold, correctly label and play the Fortune Teller game.

A Music Fortune Teller can be designed to review many concepts including note names and note values, or the names of line and space notes. Orchestral instruments and families are another great subject the kids would enjoy.

I keep a set on hand and use them to review during class time or as a filler.

F.Y.I. If you have your class make one, it takes about 30 minutes for them to color and fold. Be prepared to help them fold. Girls get it….. boys …… hmmmm!

Here is a link to download  three different musical fortune tellers.

    I love this idea for my 5th graders to review. My computer will not allow me to open your link with the directions for how to fold and play the game. If you could email me this link, I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

      You’re so welcome. I just did a similar activity with second grade… Girls can fold them fine but those boys are pretty useless! 3rd and 4th cand fold them fine and they all love to play with them.
