Looking for ways to teach B, A, and G on the recorder? This 141-page comprehensive unit includes:
*Nine songs for teaching B, A, and G,
including notation and any game directions (O Ma Washi, Hot Cross Buns, Comanche/ Otoe Hand Game Song, Sailor on the Sea, Closet Key, Frog in the Meadow, Hop Old Squirrel, Stew Pot, Old Ark's a-moverin')
*Slideshows for each of the songs:
Most of the slideshows include lyrics, stick notation with solfa, a slide asking students to transfer m, r, and do to note names, slides for having students play note names without staff, and a slide for having students play note names with the staff. The slideshows for "O ma washi" and "Sailor on the sea" are shorter, since the rhythms in each are advanced and are not included in the slideshows.
*Karate for Recorder certificates,
to hand out after students receive a belt
*Karate for Recorder sample poster
(can print and make larger with a poster machine, or laminate as is)
*Karate for Recorder editable poster
(can add whichever songs you like in whichever order you like)
*Karate for Recorder sample book:
songs are listed in order of easiest (white belt) to hardest (black belt). Note: The songs in the sample book are from this set, so only include B, A, and G.
*Karate for Recorder editable book and JPG's:
This will be a very useful tool if you'd like to create your own book with whichever songs you want! You can include B, A, G songs, but can add more difficult songs as well! I have included JPG's or PNG's for each song in the packet, so you can insert those in any order you want, or insert your own choices! You can print these out for students to practice during class and/or at home!
*Recorder BAG Fingering worksheets:
Worksheets for staff and no staff are included
*Coffee and donuts matching activity:
Directions are included for this; students can match up the note name to the note on the staff, and/or the note name to the recorder fingering
*Recorder learning center ideas
*Sweet Shop Recorder Activity:
Hyperlinked PDF for students to practice recorder playing. Students choose a sweet treat on the computer and/or the SMART board, then play that pattern or answer that question about recorder fingering! Two versions are included--staff and no staff.
*Teacher rubric for recorder
Two versions are included, one with smiley faces, and one with Karate kids
*Levels of Understanding Karate Posters:
These can be used in conjunction with Karate for Recorder and/or in your general music classroom!
*Suggestions for using the set and teaching the recorder,
including suggestions of Ipad recorder apps!

If you start with E and G instead of B, A, and G, you can still use lots of the materials in this set!
