If you are a Suzuki violin teacher or a parent, you know that we all need lots of tricks, tips and Suzuki games to make practice fun and effective. Suzuki games should be used carefully but they all have their purpose at different times.
This summer I started creating more products that will benefit the student in my studio. I am offering them through my blog for other Suzuki students and teacher to have fun with.
What is the Shark Week Suzuki Violin Practice Game?
It is a set of 7 practice cards for a practice challenge. Your child has to complete every assignment on the cards or the shark may eat them!!! The cards will look like the picture below.
Some cards are serious. Some are fun.
How to Use the Cards?
I created these during the summer for my own students who were going on vacation. I though it would be wonderful to create anticipation of the vacation with a water themed Suzuki practice cards. I would give them the challenge the week prior to their vacation. Some of my students were also keen on watching shark documentaries during the summer. So i asked them to watch something fun, then do one of the practice cards every day. You can do the same, or use them at any time of the year. If you choose to practice during a different part of the year and prefer more common theme, check these 7 day practice cards.
- You can have a daily task to start the practice if your child is reluctant that day.
- You can have practice with the cards on specific part of the day, thus developing a habit
- You can hide a different card in your child’s case every day. Once they wake up, they have to see what the shark wants them to do that day.
- you can put a card each day right next to or under the child’s plate at dinner or snack, This way they know that as soon as they are done eating, they have to complete the daily task.
- You can use the cards to provide more opportunities for practice. For example, your child can practice their regular assignment in the morning. Every afternoon after school or after their snack, they get to pick one practice card for extra fun practice.
- You can have a more traditional review activity where your child picks trandom cards and practices depending on which card they have picked.
Why Use Practice Cards for Suzuki Violin Practice?
I have found that many of my students do very well following practice cards. It provides a more fun practice plan.
Practice cards do a number of good things for practicing and especially practicing review pieces:
- They can keep kids on track practicing during the summer time when they naturally have less structure.
- They provide an extra fun element for your child’s Suzuki practice.
- There is an element of an anticipation and not knowing what would be on the next card. This is always fun for kids.
- It is very easy to use them.
- They take no extra preparation.
