Theory Time® Reproducible Series: Pre-Primer D
Workbook written by Heather Rathnau
Theory Time’s reproducible Pre-primer D is a 50-page workbook that presents the basic elements of rhythm, how to draw notes, stems, and rests through time signatures, measures, counting and dynamics (loud & soft). Types of notes include quarter, half, dotted half and whole. Rests include quarter, half and whole. Worksheets can all be enlarged for the very young students with all learning styles who need extra practice in developing the fine motor skills needed to write notes and rests legibly. Visual and aural recognition and understanding of what is meant by a steady beat are emphasized. Students are given written examples to complete and asked to tap and clap simple rhythm patterns.
