Product Description:
This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1-The Game!

Link to Lesson 1 of S-Cubed! Forbidden Pattern
In this lesson:

*We will help the students discover ways to read skips quickly.
*We will begin giving students strategies for successful 2-part sight singing through the Group Rhythm Exercises.
*We will continue refining the ears of our students by using Chromatics during the game “Forbidden Pattern”.
*We will challenge the ears of our students by Scoring the Scale using the Chromatic Scale.
*We will continue to refine our students ability to sight sing skips of the major I Chord while using all of the “tools in their toolbox” that they have learned along the way during the previous lessons.

This lesson is 10-15 minutes per day for 3 days. The lessons follow the normal daily lesson procedure outlined in the three freebies in the S-Cubed program. Please check those out! (Written/Oral warm up; Group Rhythm Practice; Forbidden Pattern; Follow the Hand; Sight Singing Example). This method is cumulative in nature. Teachers should begin with Lesson 1 and implement each lesson progressively.

*Three Sight Singing examples
*Three Two-part Group Rhythm exercises
*Guidance on the game Forbidden Pattern, Follow the Hand and Sight Singing preparation.
*Individual YouTube links for each day of the lesson with short 2-3 minutes of guidance and teaching tips geared specifically to the lesson of the day.
