Staff Wars

My students really enjoy a free drill and practice game for note names called Staff Wars. I divide the class into teams and we play the game using the SMARTboard. It could also be used in a computer lab situation and since it's free, parents could download it at home for their children. You do need to create an account to be able to download the games though. There are other free games on the site, but I have not had time to explore them.

Update: I am using version 1.2 of Staff Wars with my students. I see there is now a newer version as well. I am not familiar with the new version, but hope to check it out soon and give you a report.

  1. My kids LOVE this game too. Didn't know there was a newer version. Thanks for posting. This year I've made a score board with the different ranks of Jedi. They ALL want to play to be the Jedi Grand Master!
    So cool. Thanks for posting!
