stepwise motion

Tomorrow's lesson will be about the musical staff.  Print two copies of this musical staff and tape them together end to end so that the lines match up.  Gather 25-30 pennies in a small container.  We will use these tomorrow to represent the notes. 

Before learning about the staff it is important to understand and be able to recognize stepwise motion in a song.  Look at the tone ladder you printed out in Lesson 1 and use it for reference as you listen to today's lesson.  Keep all of the information you print out for use in future lessons.
