A few weeks ago, I posted a simple board game that I’ve used with my students to practice learning their space notes. It’s been really useful in lessons with my beginning students – they forget that they are even learning!

Here is the the companion game for learning line notes in treble clef. The pun isn’t as good – in this game, the student is trying to help a tightrope walker stay on the tightrope (eg line) to get to the other side.

It’s the same deal as before. Print it in color on cardstock and print the cards on the same. Hope you enjoy!

You can find the actual .pdf of the game here and the cards here.  Let me know if you have any questions or comments!


  1. hi – am enjoying your blog – would you please tell me how to get directions for playing the little ‘name the notes’ game you posted? i imagine you need a dice? or spinner? and game pieces? and i would like the other game like this – i have them printed and ready to go, but need your directions even though i can imagine them – i have collected SO many similar games on PINTEREST – love it — i keep each one in large ziploc bag WITH DIRECTIONS, so i don’t get confused when i have groups play them, so keeping directions with each helps me in case i have older students telling younger students how to play, when we have group classes. thanks for any help. email: jdworld@bellsouth.net

  2. Hi Jane! The directions are pretty simple. Just print out the cards (they are in a separate document on my website) and you take turns pulling cards from the stack. They you move to whatever space the card tells you to move to.

    Let me know if you have more questions!
