This is a set of four worksheets that give students a chance to drill identifying notes. For each set of two notes, a student must identify if the second note is "higher," "lower," or the "same," as the first note.
The first two worksheets use a reduced staff. When the students have mastered this, you may move them to the full, five-line staff (the third and fourth worksheet). As the worksheets advance, it is also more likely that ledger lines appear.
I always try to start each worksheet out with a "groaner" pun. These worksheets are no different, and are entitled: "Fly Higher or Lower," "Higher or Lower," "Up or Down," and "Upstairs or Down." I hope they invoke at least a smirk from you and your students.
I try to make several worksheets on the same topic; that way you can easily differentiate your assessment for advanced students as well as special education students (some may only have to do one or two worksheets, where more advanced students may have to do all four).
