Jazzy ABC Musical Instruments for kids

This is seriously such a fun little video about musical instruments.
My kinders love it!  There is also an app with the same name!

What to use to teach 3rd graders recorder?

Main Page | The Recorder Fun Book

This is the book I use with my 3rd graders for recorder. This is not the entire book but much of it! It works so well, I'm just thrilled! Yes, it has the names of the notes on the note itself, but they transition to the unnamed notes so easily because they are actually looking at the note.

I'm using Slide Whistles with my 2nd graders this year!  I've never done this before and am excited to see how it accentuates these students' pitch matching abilities!   Everyone has their own and I found clear ones so they could see the plunger moving!  I got mine from Music In Motion. I do not think they have any more clear ones.  Sadness.
