PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a set of sol-mi activities that I have started using with my first graders- it includes a smart board flip-chart and a pdf that I print, cut and laminate for the students to use as a manipulative during class.

I use a modified staff for the students so that they can better visualize exactly what we are doing without the "extra" that they don't need! The students can compose Sol-Mi melodies or sing the ones that the teacher puts on the board. This is a great introduction to music literacy that can be expanded later on. The leaves in the flip chart represent quarter notes (single leaf) or paired eighth notes (two attached leaves) and the students can be called on to manipulate them or the teacher can manipulate them.

Something that I also add is using the body to represent the solfege syllables- Head is Sol and Shoulders are Mi. I do this because I find that my first grade students often lack the motor dexterity to use traditional Curwen hand signs, and this way they can move and feel which note is higher and which note is lower.

These activities can help to teach kinesthetic, visual, and aural learners, all at the same time!

Please let me know if you have any questions or requests!

Update: I will include the printout in a separate page and put the url here.
