This is very similar to the last product I just posted for the ukulele yesterday, but is for any general music classroom. This Mega Booklet is similar in the same way where just saying it is 300 pages long does not do it justice! This massive digital booklet has a table of contents, and a full description of what that entails below. This is a life-long tool, and something I wish I had when I started teaching my first year. Over all the years of my experience teaching, these are the most engaging, and cognitively demanding music activities for your students that I’ve accumulated over time!
Rhythm: This book is organized in the first few sections to cover Rhythm Studies. Rhythms covered in these worksheets are Whole, Half, Quarter, Eighth, Sixteenth notes, and Whole Rests, Half Rests, Quarter Rests, Eighth Rests, and Sixteenth Rests. Rhythm worksheets increase in content difficulty as you progress through the pages. Rhythm activities also include 4/4, 3/4, and 2/4 Time Signature Studies, Beat Placement, and Rhythm Composition Studies. All Rhythm Worksheets progress in difficulty, covering all levels from K-12. Music Math is covered later in this book, but rhythm addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division is included in this section. ELA is also integrated in some elementary rhythm activities as it relates rhythms with syllables.
Pitch: Pitch is then covered in the following sections of this book. Pitch activities also cover all levels from K-12. Content of Worksheets include students ability to identify notes on Spaces, Lines, Note Names, and whether notes move up or down. Treble Clef, Bass Clef, Intervals, Stem Placement and Pitch Composition content learning is also also covered, and presented for all levels K-12. Color By Note Activities are also included, students will have to identify the correct pitch to reveal the color they are to use in certain spots in the picture.
Solfege: Solfege worksheets assess students ability to identify the different hand symbols for solfege. Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti & Do are obviosly the main focus of study here. Fourteen different worksheets & multiple activities range from easy to difficult to properly assess your students ability to identify the solfege symbols. Sight reading, and sight singing are not a part of the solfege worksheets.
Games/Activities: The next section is designed as fun activities that assess student understanding of the essential fundamentals of music. These activities listed below cover the following: Rhythms & Rests, Pitch Notation, Musical Symbols, Dynamics, & The Musical Instruments
Activity Set 1: Students follow the musical symbols, or rhythms through the maze to reach the exit. (5 Activities Total)
Activity Set 2: Students partner up and tally how many times their partner can draw the following musical symbols or rhythms in 60 seconds. (4 Activities Total)
Activity Set 3: Students will cut out the musical symbols, rhythms, or dynamics and paste them in order by size, loudness, or by their correct names. (11 Activities Total)
Activity Set 4: Students will draw lines matching musical symbols, rhythms, or dynamics to their correct names on the opposite side of the page. (12 Activities Total)
Activity Set 5: Students will correctly spell the names of the musical symbols, musical instruments, rhythms, dynamics below the symbols. (4 Activities Total)
Activity Set 6: Students will play the traditional game of Tic-Tac-Toe but instead of using X & O, one student will use a #(Sharp) sign and the other student will use a b(Flat) sign. (1 Activity Total)

Music in Math: This next section not only assess your students knowledge of Rhythm Notation, The Musical Instruments, and The Musical Symbols, it engages your students in activities that require them to use Mathematical Data Analysis skills from Elementary to Advanced levels. Students engage in musical activities that broaden their understanding of Pie Charts, Tally Charts, Bar Graphs, and Pie Graphs.
Color By Note: The final section of this book covers the musical symbols, rhythms, and dynamics in more simple elementary coloring activities. These are also included in the pitch section of the book, but are more cognitively demanding as students must identify the pitch to reveal the color they are supposed to use.
This is print-friendly, and all pages do not use up much ink at all. Be careful when printing, and be sure that they are double sided! In order for you to use the table of contents, the page numbers are properly aligned for easy navigation in this massive product! For that easy navigation to take place, make sure it’s printed double-sided! Stapling is not an option, I recommend a whole-puncher and a binder for this. Or if you have a binding machine, feel free to put your own spiral binding on!
