Looking for a way to practice recorder skills? Wanting to encourage critical thinking about playing recorder, naming notes on the staff, and recorder fingerings? This set includes 100 task cards to practice the following notes on recorder: BAG, E, D, high C, high D, high E, low C, F, F#, and high F.
The set includes:
*12 task cards for practicing naming one note: Asks students to name the note on the staff, show the fingering, play the note, then create/play a 4-beat pattern with that note.
*12 task cards for practicing naming one note (letter name version): Asks students to place the note on the staff, show the fingering, play the note, then create/play a 4-beat pattern with that note.
*12 task cards for practicing fingerings: After students look at a fingering, asks students to name the note, place the note on the staff, play the note, and create/play a 4-beat pattern with that note.
*48 task cards for practicing patterns: Asks students to read the rhythm pattern, say the pattern on note names, say and finger the pattern, and play the pattern.
*16 task cards to encourage critical thinking: Asks students questions like "Which note comes after G? How do you know?" and "You have to teach someone how to play the recorder. How do you begin?" These cards ask students to think deeply about the playing the recorder, recorder fingerings, and note names. Note: There are some duplicate cards from the treble clef task cards, with a different design, so that students could think through the same question as it applies to recorder.
All cards come in color and black and white. I have also included different versions of spelling, like for so and sol.
*Staff manipulatives: Can be used to build the pattern on the staff. Includes a staff with a treble clef as well as circles to cut out and put on the staff.
*Directions: Includes directions for preparing the cards, suggestions for use, and suggestions for differentiation.
Note: If you don't start with BAG, many of the cards can still be used (i.e. if you start with G and E.)
