Inspired by Mr. A Brox of @MusicMrBrox on Twitter, I made these music notes and symbols cards to use next year to play Go Fish! Students practice musical vocabulary while playing the game. I teach instrumental music with my upper grade students and this is where I would probably use these games. I made four sets, each on a different color of card stock.
It’s a free download from this blog for a limited time! Please feel free to share! Click the download link under the pdf preview to download.
I included the clef signs in the lower left corner so students would know which way to hold the card. I really want them to practice recognizing half rest and whole rest, but without the indicator, they look the same!
For symbols that can be flipped, like quarter notes, one card has the stem going up and the other has the stem going down so students can recognize that they are the same thing.
The second page has a cheat sheet. I laminated that to go with the game. Students can use it if they need to refer to something or they can challenge themselves to play the game without it!
There are several symbols not included in this set because I ran out of space. Is there something missing you would really like added? I’m in the process of making a third page to make more advanced sets. Let me know and I’ll try to include your ideas.

I joined my first ever link party with Mrs. King’s Music Room, a fabulous blog full of great music room ideas. Here’s to getting our Summer Projects done!
