This program includes BOTH the whiteboard resource and the printable workbook, and they are designed to be used together.
Every lesson is laid out with 9 or 10 preplanned activities, in a logical order.
Students won’t get bored as the activities keep coming with just enough variety and enough repetition to make sure they have mastered the concepts.
In every single lesson there is an aural quiz, which relates to the theory work the students have been doing.
If they have been doing work on rhythm and note values, then there will be a rhythm identification exercise, or if they have been learning about intervals, there will be an interval recognition example.
They are designed so the whole class do the activity, then find out the answers via the erase-to-reveal feature on the whiteboard.
In every lesson there is also a fun game for the class to participate in.
This is not a computer game, but an interactive experience for the whole class
For example in the Speed Quiz (as pictured) students take turns to come to the board, and have to quickly press their buzzer if they can identify the card when it is flipped.
Your students will be lining up to come to music class with these games a part of your lessons!
The printable content is the same. However, the interactive content is made to match it, and it contains a lot more than is in the printable workbook. It is designed to go hand-in-hand with the printable workbook from Printable Music Theory Books, which is why it is included with the package purchase of $99.
If you already own printable music theory books, level one you can purchase it for a discount if you contact us for a discount code.
How many lessons are included/how long will this program take?
We structured this into 14 lessons, and each lesson should take a full 45-60 minute long music theory class. However, there is no reason to suggest that it has to take exactly that time: your students can go through it as quickly or slowly as you need to. You can simply resume where you left off if they take longer than a session to get through one of the pre-planned lessons.
Do I need an interactive whiteboard to use this program?
For best results you should have an interactive whiteboard, however it is possible to use a computer and projector, or just the whiteboard program on a computer screen if you’d like to.
Do I need additional software to use this program?
Yes, you need either SMART Notebook (for SMARTBoards) or ActiveInspire (for Promethean or other whiteboards). Instructions are included for downloading ActiveInspire personal edition which is free at this time, but please download this and try it with one of our sample files before you purchase this program.
Are answers included?
Yes. all answers are included on the whiteboard, using the ‘erase to reveal’ feature. You therefore work out the answers together with the students using the whiteboard pens, then when you erase them you’ll find the official answer underneath. Fully answered printable workbooks are also available if you would prefer to use them.
