Also on these boards
practice their ability to read music by playing a game called Swat the Staff. To play this game we create a staff on the wall or a board. Students choose one flyswatter and take their place in front of the staff. With their backs to the staff and flyswatters down students listen to hear what letter they need to swat. This fun game is a great way to review the letter names of the staff
From the Reproducible Student Recorder Book included in "All Things Recorder: BAGE"
This is a three page composition paper that will lead young students through a step-by-step process of composing an eight measure recorder piece! I created it for my 3rd graders who are beginning recorder players. It could be used for other instruments as well!
Students are given two melodic patterns consisting of Do, Re and Mi. The teacher plays one of the patterns, and students determine which of the two patterns the teacher played. This can be done as a whole class or individually. It is a Smart Notebook download, so that you can demonstrate using the SmartBoard, but also print it off as a worksheet/test.
