NOTES FOR AMERICAN FOLK SONGS AND WORKSHEETS FOR TPT
This is a set of 10 American Folk Songs with associated worksheets. Worksheets include:
- 3 x Rhythmic Dictation worksheets
- 3 x Melodic Dictation worksheets
- 4 x Sight-Reading worksheets

These resources and more also available on MySongFile.com.au

The Rhythmic Dictation Worksheets begin with exercises to prepare students for dictating the rhythm of the song.

STEP 1: Answer questions while listening to the song. (If you have students who struggle with dictation, these questions may help. By giving students specific elements to listen for, the dictation becomes more achievable.)

STEP 2: Students are directed to fill in the missing rhythms to help focus on selected rhythms from the song.

STEP 3: Fill in the missing rhythms above the staff. (Selected rhythms are included to assist students. This is the rhythm of the song.)

STEP 4: Students who finish early can write the melody of the song on the staff using the rhythms they have dictated. N.B. This optional question is not included in the marks for the worksheet.

• Answers for the worksheet are provided.

The Melodic Dictation Worksheets begin with exercises to prepare students for dictating the melody of the song.

STEP 1: Answer questions while listening to the song. (If you have students who struggle with dictation, these questions may help. By giving students specific elements to listen for, the dictation becomes more achievable.)

STEP 2: Students are directed to fill in the missing solfa to help focus on selected intervals from the song before needing to write notes on the staff in step 3. (After hearing the melody, students can fill out the tone set individually, as a class, or you can tell them the notes.)

STEP 3: Fill in the missing notes on the staff. (Selected notes are included to assist students in writing the melody).

• Answers are provided.

The Sight Reading Worksheets begin with exercises to prepare students for sight-reading the song.
