Teaching Tip Tuesday: Recognizing Sharp Signs

Teaching Tip #3: Recognizing Sharp Signs

Well I warned you that some of these tips would be random. And quite simple. When teaching young students about sharps and flats, a great way to teach them to recognize a sharp sign is that it looks like a tic-tac-toe game. There you have it. Happy Tuesday to all!

    When I'm introducing sharps, I tell them if I poke them with something sharp, they'll jump up. So when they see all the sharp points on the sharp sign, they need to go up a half step.

  • Great idea Amy! Thanks for sharing! When I teach flats I usually tell them to think of a flat tire going down. I'll have to remember your sharp idea!
