Staff Slate Bundles
September 24th, 2009 | posted by splizzie
With larger classes I was finding it a challenge to manage all my ledger lines, clefs and accidentals in regards to handing out, collecting and staying organized. I created these Staff Slate Bundles that have saved me so much time and made more room for fun learning.
First, I went to an office supply store and bought plastic sheet protectors for business cards. They have slots for 10 cards. I cut them in half down the middle which created a perfect pocket for 1. Flats 2. Sharps 3. Double Flats/Sharps 4. Naturals and 5. Ledger Lines.
Then I used small binder clips to hold the clefs together.
Finally, I packaged them all together in little snack size ziplock bags. Each one is marked with a music symbol sign so that students can identify one from another and if we find something is missing in one bundle, I can easily keep it separate from the others.
Students also think I am "super crafty" for making these, which is a bonus. But the real benefit is the tons of time you will save from dealing out and collecting materials.
Please keep me posted when you have your moments of crafty genius
