Let’s Play Ball Worksheets

Lets Play Ball Worksheet

Lets Play Ball Worksheets

I made the Let’s Play Ball worksheet a few years ago for a student who loved baseball. The original one I posted was for piano keys only, and while I actually tried to make a staff version at the same time, I found it almost finished, abandoned and forgotten in my computer files. I finished it up because I have a student who just tried out and made a new baseball team and I thought he would enjoy this way of reinforcing note names. The instructions are to draw lines to connect the notes or keys to the alphabet letters.

These worksheets use some ink, which is why I like to use my iPad for handout like this. They both work really well on an iPad because all the student has to do is draw lines to connect the alphabet letter to the note on the staff or the piano key. Another ink saver is to make one copy and put it in a sheet protector and then use dry or wet eraser markers. I like the sheet protector idea because they are easy to store in binder.

I want to mention to my long-time followers that I have been trying to get all my material listed in a way to make it easier to find.

If you select the Free tab at the top a new page will open.  Click on Newer Free Resources and scroll down to select the type of items you want.

I have finished moving all my old games to the “Game” page. There might be some floating around somewhere that I’m trying to find and add. Most of the holiday pages, except for holiday sheet music, is finished so you should be able to see almost all of the Valentine and St. Patrick’s day material.

 Now I’m working on the “Worksheet” page and I think it will take me a long time. Eventually I hope to get all the music and teaching aids from the old site moved over. If you find a broken link, please let me know so I can fix it.

When a site has as much material as this one, it can be hard to find things. What I do is a Google search such as: Susan Paradis fly flash cards. Google seems to do a better job than the search engine on my blog! I also have a Pinterest page where there are boards for all my material.

This is a black and white line drawing of a staff that I made especially to use on an iPad. Students can practice drawing notes, accidentals, and clefs. This document can also be printed for drawing and coloring. So if you don’t have an iPad you can still use it.

Many iPad apps have the ability to write on documents. Over the past 5 or so years I have tried out many different ones. Some have free versions for you to try out. Some allow you to record audio instructions. My suggestion is to find one you like, but be open for new features that are in different programs.

Why would you want to use a worksheet on an iPad?

  • To go paperless and save ink.
  • To store them in your iPad and save space in your studio.
  • To have them easily available when you need them.
  • It’s more fun for students.

If you are in the Dallas area and are interested in attending an interactive morning iPad workshop, send me an email and I will put you on the waiting list.

Clover Full Of Notes

I have been trying to update my old material and I’m working on St. Patrick’s Day material this week.

I’ve updated the text on this rhythm worksheet to make it more iPad friendly. Included is a black and white version for teachers who don’t want to print in color.

Students complete the worksheet by drawing half notes in the first ring around the whole note in the center, then quarter notes in the middle leaves, and eighth notes on the outside leaves.

A few years ago I wrote a tutorial about how open a worksheet on your iPad or Android. MetaMoji (also known as Note Anytime) can also be used on other tablets as well as an iPad. https://susanparadis.com/metamoji-note-an-app-for-writing-on-the-ipad-and-other-tablets/

Notability is a good app for the iPad, and it works almost the same as MetaMoji.

Made for the iPad: More Rhythm Notes

 

I’m gradually trying to add more to my Made for the iPad page. To find this page, go to the top menu bar and select “Free”, then “Newer Free Resources,” then “iPad Resources,” and you will see a collection of materials I use on my iPad. This is also how you can get to my old site. Just select “Older Resources.”

Today I am posting four more rhythm pages to draw on a mobile tablet.  Check out this post for more notes, and go here for a tutorial of a free, easy app to draw on worksheets with several mobile devices. According to the developer, the app works on an iPad, Android tablet, Kindle Fire, and Windows tablet, which is pretty amazing. [Disclosure: I am not affiliated with this app in any way and I discovered it by accident a few year ago.]

My iPad page is a work in progress.  If you are successfully using any of my material on your tablet, please email me with some feedback. Pictures are great, too!
