Click the link above to experiment with song writing.

  • How does it sound when you change the tempo (speed)?
  • How can you make the pitches higher?
  • How can you make the pitches lower?

Once you’ve decided how you want your song to sound, click the ukulele to add a harmony! Create a shoebox guitar!

  • Empty shoebox with lid
  • 3-6 rubber bands
  • Paper (construction paper or whatever is available)
  • Tape and scissors
  • Crayons, markers, stickers
  • 2 Pencils

Cover the shoebox using paper and tape. Decorate using crayons, markers and stickers. Draw a large circle in the middle of the lid and cut it out. Ask for help if you need it! Put the lid on the shoebox and stretch the rubber bands around the whole box so that they’re sitting across the hole. Slide the two pencils under the rubber bands on each end of the lid to create the bridges of the guitar. Happy music making!

Below are some activities that you can do while out of school. Feel free to include family members and/or friends! Some activities are indoor activities, some can be either outdoor or indoor.

Play the game:
a.  Roll the Color Roll. Say the name of the color that is pointing straight up when it stops rolling. Start where the game board says “Empezar” and find the closest matching color word.  Color in that color.  Roll the Color Roll again and find the next closest matching color. (As you can see, the first two colors I rolled were amarillo/yellow and morado/purple.

b. Continue playing until you have colored in the whole game board. That might mean you have to play several rounds of the game. Hold on to the game board and the Color Roll for more games next week.
