Animal Alphabet Songs are a set of seven one-page mini-songs with duets written to introduce beginners to the notes on the staff. If you teach young children, you know how difficult it can be to introduce notes on the staff. These Animal Alphabet Songs give you an easy way to introduce seven notes around middle C in a slow and methodical method. Each song, from A below middle C to G above middle C feature only one note with appealing teacher duets to make the music more interesting. (Pat the Cat does not include a duet so that the teacher can perform the motions with the student.) Also included free in this bundle are the very popular Search and Find worksheets using the same 7 notes and animals as in the songs.
Use these for learning a note a week!
The engaging words and child-friendly art make these perfect to introduce notes or reinforce notes for your elementary students. They can be used after pre-reading or by teachers who skip pre-reading and go directly to notes on the staff. These songs include notes that students may have not learned yet. I suggest you teach unknown notes by rote or simply by playing “stepping” fingers and do not worry about naming the unknown notes. Concentrate on learning to identify only the featured note on the staff. Not thinking the name of each note will help students to think beyond “typing” notes and will help them play musically.
Use the printable Animal Alphabet keys [sold separately • click here] to cover the featured note everywhere it is found on the keyboard.
Fingering boxes are in the score so that teachers may add fingerings appropriate to the method they use.
