I created heart cards with musical expressions on them and tempos. Students will pick a expression card and perform the correct expression or tempo with the candy heart. You can purchase the candy hearts or conversation hearts they sell at the store or use the ones I made below.
The student then reads the candy heart with the correct tempo (you can use a metronome) or expression. I found it helpful to have the student say the words on the candy heart three times. So, they would say “Be Mine, Be Mine, Be Mine” with a ritardando or stacatto or a mezzo forte voice. Afterwards I let the students eat their candy hearts, which they throughly enjoyed.
