Overview: I set out to put these worksheets and manipulatives together for my own use in the music classroom. My goal was to create a minimalistic, approachable, and functional set of worksheets and tools to help students 1) learn to write the notes they've been using in class 2) give them an outline to compose using the notes. There are a number of resources beyond the worksheets for students (listed below) that I hope you'll find helpful. All of these are materials that I've personally used. Special thanks to the music teachers who helped me refine these worksheets & directions included! You know who you are.
Directions: Included in the packet. They include how to use the worksheets and rubrics.
This Packet Includes:
-Directions for Use
-Note Writing Worksheet (Students copy the notation shown).
-Create a Song Worksheet (Students create their own composition using Dotted Quarter/Eighth Notes)
-Rubrics for grading both pages (including Self Evaluation for Students)
-Full Page Staff Paper Printable (to practice writing notes on a music staff)
-Full Page with 8 blank measures (to practice writing notes)
-Printable versions of note "index cards" (Page 1: 4 dotted quarter notes per page, Page 2: 4 sets of 3-beamed Eighth notes per page).
*I print the blank staff paper and 8 blank measures on opposite sides of cardstock. After lamination, the students are able to use dry erase markers and practice writing notes and dictations on them.
