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. We had our first tests (review) over Book 1 and Book 2. This month, we will begin learning new notes in Book 3. The week before a test, students will get their own set of flashcards to take home and study as homework. Students also have note naming games and a copy of the book posted as homework in their Music Google Classroom.
