In this resource, Denise Gagne 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. Also 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, there is a chords projectable. The audio files are embedded in the PDF. (see the red button) 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 is a great way to introduce reading notation to your elementary music students!
