This worksheet helps with melodic dictation and is really easy to use. Kids listen to a melody and then circle which of the two cupcakes displays the correct melody.
You, as the teacher, just direct the student’s attention to the first set of cupcakes and then play one of the examples. It’s a good idea to play it twice and then allow time for the student to answer.
After the student has circled her answer, check her response and give feedback. You may want to play the example one more time.
I like the worksheet because it also works great during a group lesson. Click the button below to print and give it a try!
