Do your students need help with writing stems on the staff? This helpful set includes the following:

*Stem tracing worksheets for notes below, above, and on the third line, as well as barred notes
*Stem writing worksheets for notes below, above, and on the third line
(worksheets are geared for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Christmas, Halloween, and then any time of the year)
*Printables for bulletin boards or posting in your music room (reminding students of incorrect stem notation)
*SMART board files for writing stems below, above, and on the third line (using popsicle stick visuals and the SMART board pen)
*SMART board file for writing barred stems (using the SMART board pen)

This set can be used with a variety of grade levels. You might start with your younger kids only writing stems for notes below the third line, and then go from there. The tracing worksheets can be used as a formative assessment. The holiday worksheets could be used as formative and summative--for example, you could use the Valentine's Day worksheet as a formative assessment, and then after some practice, a month later, use the St. Patrick's Day as your summative assessment!

If you don't have SMART Notebook, you can still view the files by opening them at
