There are lots of options out there. |
The key is to make it easier on you for grading and more fun for the kids. Worksheets can be a pain to grade.
I suggest you first try www.Quizizz.com
It works seamlessly with google classroom (and other LMS programs) and essentially gamifies anything you need to teach that could be assessed as a quiz.
We have done live quizzes with the class (everyone on their device, competing with their peers to be at the top of the leaderboard for a quiz that is just testing note name knowledge or symbol recognition.) they get really into it and it works great for connecting in-class kids with the remote students (all our classes are synchronous - 7 periods of kids in person and online at the same time ...
If you assign the Quizizz as homework and share via google classroom, the grades they get on the quizzes automatically show up in google classroom.
Also recommend http://trainer.thetamusic.com for fun ear training and rhythm games. . .
- Noteflight Learn (needs a subscription, but there are lots of pre-built fillable worksheets and composition activities available within it.)
- Soundtrap - another subscription, but it allows kids to make music and record themselves using an online easy-to-use DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) that works on any device. and there are lots of pre-built lessons plans within the program and fantastic tutorials.
PS: If you need even more ideas, I created a bitmoji Virtual Band Hall for our kids that has lots of links to online theory resources. Feel free to check it out and beg, borrow, or steal any ideas you can use.
The link to the Virtual Band Hall is posted on our website (scroll down past the Director’s Notes): https://bit.ly/svmsband
