Who Is Mr. Everybody?

Mr. Everybody's Musical Apartment is a silly story that we use to help us learn how to name the notes on the music staff (those five lines and four spaces). We use the initials of the characters to learn the names on the notes. Our first test is review over Book 1 (CDEF). We will review Book 2 over the next grading period, and eventually learn new notes in Book 3 by the spring semester. The week before a test, students will get their own set of flashcards to take home and study as homework.

We are trying raise funds to purchase instruments for our classroom. Our goal is to have enough barred instruments (xylophones, glockenspiels, metallophones) for an entire class of students- thanks to a recent grant from DonorsChoose.org, we are only 7 instruments away from this goal!
