Introduction to Sol and MiSummary:
The first screen introduces sol and mi on a modified staff. The teacher can then demonstrate how to sing the three quarter notes. Then, using the extra quarter notes below, the teacher can drag the notes down to create a pattern of sol and mi, demonstrate it for the students, and have the students sing along. The next page introduces sol and mi with eighth notes. In a similar way as the first page, the teacher can choose any four items (a ti-ti counts as ONE item) to place on either line. The teacher has the students say the rhythm first, followed by identifying sol and mi, and finally combining rhythm and pitch together. The following pages are left for students to come to the board and choose any four items and place on either the sol or mi line to create their own melody for the class to perform. If a student places a note between the lines, the teacher should ask the student to clarify which pitch was chosen and fix it. For fun, sometimes the class will add lyrics to the small melodies, as well.
The second file builds upon the initial lesson and adds La.
And the third file builds further by adding low Do.
