From Themes & Variations
by Denise Gagne
You've had sets of Boomwhackers® forever, but what do you do with them? In this resource, Denise takes you through a sequential process that will help your students in Grades 2-5 learn to read rhythms, melodies, and chords.
There are 55 musical examples for students to play, with fun accompaniment tracks. To make this really easy to teach, included is a projectable PDF, formatted to be easy to read, of both Kids Notes (letter names shown on the note) and Colored Boomwhacker® notation. To teach about chords, also included is a chords projectable. The audio files are embedded in the PDF. The Teacher's Guide includes worksheets to introduce the staff, letter names, composition and mad minutes, as well as notes on how to teach music reading using Boomwhackers®.
This resource is classroom-tested and it is a great way to introduce reading notation to your elementary music students!
