Teaching musical forms is so much easier when you use large and colorful visuals like these! In this free set you'll get visual aides to teach forms like AB, ABA, ABACADA, and more. These letters with accompanying shapes have greatly strengthened my students and their ability to identify patterns and large forms within guided listening examples!

Whenever I teach patterns or form elements to my students I like to have a visual aid to help them see and understand how the pattern works. This is especially important for guided listening activities to give them something tangible to refer back to even as they listen and work to comprehend the song.

Included in this set:

*Large letters (A, B, C, D, E, F) to use as a whole class visual as you work through a form.

*Medium letters (two to a page) to help put together longer forms. This is big enough to see from the back of a classroom but when put together won’t take up your whole whiteboard. Easier to manipulate and still easy to see.

*Small letters (12 to a page) to print out and give to your students so that they can work together or in small groups to figure out patterns and form even as you are leading the class with the larger posters.
