The Teacher Set is the perfect introduction to the Note Knacks System! You will find that this method and hands-on tool will revolutionize how you teach music literacy! Included are a set of lesson plans that walks you through the process step-by-step, 31 blocks representing the 5 most common note and rest values ~ your students will immediately understand the relationships between those note values, as well as the “silent” notation on the backs ~ and 3 time signature frames that will help students compose within 2/4, 3/4 or 4/4 time parameters. Rhythms are easily read by simply saying the colors! Younger students will be able to practice their syllables, while older students will not feel babyish when they can read rhythms with a simple explanation!
Pugliese recommends this for:
- A first step in learning about the Note Knacks System
- A demo set with a small group of students
- A center in your classroom
- For parents that DO NOT already know how to read music
