Staff Slates Pack



Students use these double-sided cards and the included accessories to place clefs, write notes, intervals, key signatures, scales, triads, chords, learn solfège, use ledger lines, and practice sight-singing and take dictation.

The twelve identical cards have different colored borders, each with one small Music Mind Games kid to add a little humor for students and show up and down orientation.

  • Side 1: The grand staff has printed clefs and only enough space for the three notes (B, Middle C, and D) found between the clefs to make it easy for students to learn the relationship between the two staves
  • Side 2: The single staff is without a clef so students can choose the clef they want to use


How does the staff slates pack differ from the folding staff slate that comes with the Puppy Packet

There are 12 staff slates in the Staff Slate Pack, each with a solid color border (blue, pink, yellow, orange, green, or purple) which matches the borders of the melodic bingo cards and the paper pianos. The Staff Slate Pack cards are slightly narrower than the staff slates to match the size of the melodic bingo cards.

The folding staff slate includes one double-sided slate with a rainbow border as well as clear transparencies with clefs, sharps, flats, etc. The folding staff slate is cut in the middle to fold for convenient storage and transportation inside the Puppy Packet.
