Note Story About Bats

Bat Facts Note Story

Some of my students were begging me for another note story so I made one for them.  Actually this is not a story, but 5 sentences with some interesting information about bats that children might not know.

When it comes to note stories, I’ve noticed that some students love them and some don’t care for them at all. Some students try to figure out the words by context instead of reading the notes. You are free to use this with students you think will enjoy it!

If you are having a group lesson this week, your students might enjoy working on it together. I’m going to put it in my student’s binder and let them work on it in their spare time.

Bats are actually very helpful animals, and I’ve always liked them — from a distance, of course!

    I finally remembered to make a donation today. I”m so dependent on your materials I get a little cranky when there isn’t exactly what I imagine available. What? No Halloween pre-reading composition page? Nothing for Veteran’s Day? School conferences? Standard Time change?
    Bat Facts was a big hit. So was Cats and Bats.
    Oh, by the way, there seems to be something wrong with the large staff paper file. It is only printing out one line.
    Many thanks for the work you do.

      Thanks for the laugh and for making my day!
      I really do need a Halloween composition page. Someone needs to remind me next September!
      I appreciate so much your donation to help support the website.
      I’ll take a look at the large staff paper file. In the meantime, be sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader.
      (Ed: I just took a look at that file and it is downloading very slowly, but it did download correctly for me. It is a very old file. I’ll replace it as soon as I can.)

    I have returned to piano teaching after many years–
    and I have gained so much knowledge, insight and
    Printables from you!

    Thank you just isn’t a big enough word!

    May I just say what I’m sure many have said…You are awesome! Thank you so much for sharing not only your immense creativity, but also all your hard work with us! This is the most useful website I’ve ever encountered as a piano teacher. And as a mother of 2 (toddler and infant) it is such a blessing to have these ready-made, beautifully put together resources at my fingertips! God Bless!

    With Appreciation!

    Teachers could attach a slip of paper over the word areas until the student names the notes in the measures. Then the paper could be removed and the letters could be inserted into the words.

      Great idea, Nancy!
