This is an activity for beginning orchestra students.
Before students are allowed to use bows on their instruments, they must log 1,000 bow holds (much like logging driving hours before getting a drivers license), 100 of which must be supervised by the teacher. Students must log those bow holds on a pencil/dowel/other until they log at least 800 bow holds.
This is the log used to show how many bow holds have been completed. I like to print on cardstock and staple into their folders. They are allowed to use time at the beginning of class to log bow holds during warm ups or any individual practice time during class.
