This package of two explanation sheets and five worksheets are meant to teach and/or reinforce rules for stem direction on the treble clef and bass clef staves. Stem direction is explained in terms of "diving" (below the middle line) and "paddling" (above the middle line). Lines underneath each note also provide an opportunity for students to review by naming the notes in the exercises. Two of the five worksheets include ledger line notes above and below the staff. Full solutions (note names and stems) for all five worksheets are included.
Perfect for supply teachers, homework assignments, and teaching/reinforcing/evaluating student understanding of stem direction.
