These simple worksheets make a quick and easy pre-assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment. You can even use them for all three to compare and clearly see the students’ progress!

There are four sheets included with this set, for the four foundational elements typically taught in early elementary music classes: duration, tempo, pitch and dynamics.

Each sheet allows students to respond individually to five sounds/excerpts. You can use them in a variety of ways, making sounds with your voice, playing an instrument, or playing a recorded musical excerpt.

Great activity for non-music subs!!
You can also use the VIDEOS created specifically for these assessment sheets, which make it easy even for your non-music substitute teachers. They also make an easy music center if your students are rotating around.

These sheets are open-ended in that you can make the musical examples as easy or challenging as you like, catering specifically to the needs of each class. The clear graphics make it accessible for students regardless of reading ability or language barriers.

***Updated 9 Sep 2021 to improve "Fast/slow" video***
