This week the third graders were beginning to learn about the musical staff, and the letter names of the lines and spaces on the treble clef. The students drew the staff on their iPad using Drawing Pad, and practiced how to draw the treble clef symbol as well.
After a discussion about the letter names of the lines (E,G,B,D and F), and spaces (F,A,C,E), they used the letters to create words with notes.
All of this study is leading to our Recorder Unit in January when we will read standard pitch notation for the first time! The third graders are already excited!
