Here's the follow-up to the 2012 Lightning Violin! (link below)
This is a curriculum I use in grades 3, 4, and 5. We have a full set of violins at our school and we learn notation, rhythms, and notes through an original curriculum called "Lightning Violin". The students all learn the songs together and then an individual student plays the song by themselves for assessment.
If they play it correctly, I give them a "bolt" on their chart (which I save in powerpoint). It gets very competitive and the students really respond well and practice as hard as they can to get their next bolt.
This particular version focuses on learning the rhythms and notes without the aid of fingering charts or letters, which makes it a bit more challenging for students who have relied on that in the past. There are a few review slides before the songs that ensures students have everything they need to complete the program! It goes a little slower, but it's scaffolding made easy (White Belt is the easiest, Rainbow Belt the most challenging)
Included with this are 9 mp3 files accompaniments (with a cool hip hop piano background!) along with the powerpoint in PDF format. Kids LOVE it! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them!
