Recorder Resource Kit, The, Vol. 1
From Themes & Variations
by Denise Gagne
Denise Gagne's The Recorder Resource Kit contains everything you need for teaching a first-year recorder program, including a teacher's guide, listening activities, games, practice cards, note name "Mad Minutes," Orff accompaniments, piano/guitar chord symbols, evaluation ideas, quizzes, composition ideas, recorder care tips, note name flashcards, and CD.
The 42 reproducible student pages, written in standard notation, are also repeated in kids' note notation (with the note name inside the note head to help with note identification).
