Product Description
This is book 1 of a set of four. This packet is designed to begin learning recorder with both hands on the recorder, starting with G & E, then adding A, and so on. The range is from low E to high D'. The notes the students are learning on the recorder align with the solfege in the songs that they're used to singing (Sol Mi, Sol Mi La, etc). The packet quickly builds a pentatonic scale, so you can easily incorporate orff instruments, improvisation, and other ideas into your lessons. Each song is a new belt color that follows the order of receiving belts in a karate class. The purple belt in the packet is to test literacy skills through sight-reading so that you can determine what help your students need to further achieve their belts successfully.

If you prefer to start BAG or C', D', the songs can easily be arranged to fit your preference.

This packet is made so that you can set the printer to print double-sided, staple twice on the left side, and then easily cut the packet in half to create two packets. Time & tree saver!

Packet includes:
Name & classroom teacher page
Reminder page (staff notes, left hand on top, breathe gently, tongue the notes, etc)
Apple Tree (G, E)
Star Light, Star Bright (Reinforces G, E)
Lucy Locket (A)
Windy Day (B)
Hot Cross Buns (Reinforces BAG)
Sight Reading
Apple Tree (C', D')
Lucy Locket (D')
Ode to Joy (Reinforces C', D')

Make it more fun by adding a strip of yarn in the color of the song belt to tie onto the end of their recorder once they've successfully played a song!
