Beginning string players need a lot of practice reading notes - and you need a lot of time to tune their instruments! Crack the Code Orchestra Note Reading is a fun different way to practice note reading, and it's a great resource to keep students engaged while you are tuning. These worksheets would also fit very well into sub plans, as a station activity, or as in-class work while you spend extended time with another section.
This set of Crack the Code features six silly music jokes which are revealed as students label notes and then use the key to determine the real letters. Notes used are those most beginners learn first - one octave starting on open D. You can easily use Crack the Code Jokes for a grade by checking the note names. Incorrect note names will result in nonsense words, so students can check their own work!
Included in this product are:
- 6 worksheets for each instrument (18 total, cello and bass are combined)
- 1 large key (for projection)
- 2 small keys (to print and hand out)
- 1 answer key so you know the jokes ahead of time
Note - You may need to set your printer settings to 'landscape' for the pdf to print correctly
