This kit contains four different BAGC'D' recorder activities for your students. I use them as part of my Recorder Karate Stations, while I am testing other students. I laminate the directions to a file folder for each center, and put the consumable worksheets inside so that they are ready for students upon center rotation. These activities could also be used for whole class learning.
The following activities are included:
Superhero Melodies: For this activity, students use the rhythms of superhero's names, to write a melody using BAGC'D'. They then create a melody for their own musical superhero character, determining a special musical superpower for their hero!
Superhero Note Names: During this activity, students complete the spelling of superhero's names, using musical spelling. Missing letters from the character's written name are to be notated on the musical staff. A recorder fingering chart is included.
Superhero Soaring: Students identify note names on short skipping (soaring) melodic patterns. Then, they color in the fingering for each pattern on their recorder. Lastly, they practice playing the soaring patterns, helping to improve their switching between notes. A fingering chart is included.
Superhero Self-Reflection: During this station, students decide a super power that would improve their recorder playing. They write about how they could improve their superpower recorder playing.
