For many people, 2020 has not been a banner year. But this doesn’t mean many great things haven’t happened.
And it is important that our piano students are reminded of this fact. Childhood is short, and every year, no matter how challenging, should be celebrated.
Today we are sharing a “Look Back On 2020” piano lesson card game that you should play with your students before the year ends.
It will remind your kids of the progress they have made and the fun they have had. It will also motivate them to return to lessons in 2021 revved up and ready to go!
Let’s Look Ahead Before We Look Back
Before we get to today’s card games, we wanted to share with you our biggest addition to the WunderKeys and Teach Piano Today Library from 2020…

A ‘Look Back On 2020’ Piano Card Game
With today’s printable card game, you and your students can look back on their accomplishments and success in 2020.
Playing the game is a snap. To begin, print, cut, and laminate the playing cards. Then, at the end of a piano lesson, take turns selecting cards with your piano student. When a card is selected, the person (you or your student) reads the statement and then responds with an answer. Your student uses this as a way to self-reflect. You use this as a way to provide encouraging feedback to your student.
Don’t rush through the game. Take time to use each card as a jumping-off point for celebrating your students.
