I'm hoping that later today I'll be able to post a Shoo-Fly teaching PowerPoint I've been working on for 2nd/3rd grade (freebie alert!).
While scrolling through the mounds of cute clip art at My Cute Graphics, I found some more fly-related stuff and now I'm all sorts of carried away. Pretty much everyone on TPT and Pinterest uses her stuff and I LOVE IT.
My 3rd graders are still working on the treble clef pitches. (4th and 5th still get reviewed, drilled, and play staff-related games, however). I'm creating this activity for them.
I'm working on a treble clef tic-tac-toe activity, another matching activity, a whole-class game (fly swatters anyone?), and maybe a worksheet or two. I'll be posting and bundling these as I make them.
Here's the first bundle: Shoo-Fly Treble Clef Practice PowerPoints
Since my 3rd graders are relatively new to learning absolute pitches, I created this review PowerPoint:
I've defined "treble clef" before and it is on our word wall. "G clef" will be new.
Here's the real fun though. In subsequent lessons, students will practice "reading" words on the music staff. Click on the correct apple (on the stem) and the flies fly off the screen - they've been shoo-ed. If your student(s) chooses an incorrect apple, click on the stem of that apple and nothing will happen - they know they'll have to try again.
There are three levels: Level 1 - 2 to 3 letters, Level 2 - 4 to 5 letters, and Level 3 - 6 to 7 letters
