Intended to be used as a workbook for children. Correlates with An American Methodology (item 839409). The teacher is encouraged to use additional songs and activities to enhance reading and writing skills. The book is written sequentially, but the teacher should feel free to change the order of the pages to suit the needs of the classroom. Covers rhythmic elements of beat, rhythm, ta, ti-ti and ta-rest, and two-beat meter; melodic elements of so and mi, and la in a so-la-so-mi pattern. Part of the series of five sequential workbooks, based on American folksongs and children’s rhymes.
Sheets may be used as masters for transparencies, individual worksheets, or may be bound in book form as a workbook for each student – the material comes as loose pages inside a packet, and is copy-permissible (for educational purposes) to the purchaser of the workbook.
