I am a new Suzuki teacher this year, and teach at an Arts Academy Magnet School. I have 60 1st graders learning violin. They have mini lessons, and a group class of 20 every week. Right now we are bowing rhythms on open strings.

What are your ideas for group class games and activities for this level?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks Laura.
I do most of these, but am curious about “My Turn Your Turn”, “Spill Over Game”, and “Twinkle Train”.
