Last Thursday was our fourth Investment Club Meeting (a.k.a. group class) of the year. One of the new games we tried is one I dubbed, “Call-it!” The inspiration came from a really old Fun Encyclopedia that I picked up years ago at an antique shop.
Here are the instructions:
Dump a set of scrabble tiles on the floor in the middle of all the students. Turn all the tiles upside down. Go around in a circle and have each student turn over one letter. As soon as they turn over a tile, the first person to call out a musical term or symbol that begins with that letter gets to take the letter. But in order to keep the letter they have to correctly draw and/or define it. Play continues with the next person. Play for an allotted time or until all the tiles have been taken. The player with the most tiles at the end wins!
James displays the eighth note he drew after calling it for the “E” tile. There was a wide variety of musical terms and symbols and other things used – from types of notes to names of composers to instruments. Very fun! I think we’ll definitely be using this one again!
