I really have enjoyed using the keyboard pentascale labels I made a a few weeks ago. However, some of my readers asked if I had thought about making two octave labels so they could write out full scales. Click here to get to my website and then click preview to print.
At first I was afraid they would be too small for the size label I have, but after trying it out, I think they are big enough to at least put dots on the keys. You might not be able to write in finger numbers. If you don’t want to buy 1″ X 2 5/8″ address labels, you can cut them out and tape them on your student’s assignment books. That is what I did when I first tried them out.
There is a wonderful 3M Scotch™ brand tape that is removable. It’s rather hard to find, and more expensive than regular tape, but I always keep some on hand. You can tape one of these little keyboards on their assignment book and the next week remove it and place it on a new page. If you do this, you won’t have to buy labels, and the tape is a lot less expesive than buying adress labels. The tape works like those little yellow sticky notes that teachers love so much. It is sold in either a roll that you have to put in your own dispenser, or sometimes I find it in a plastic dispenser like regular Scotch™ tape. I think I usually buy it at craft stores, and when I do I stock up. It lasts me a long time, because after all, you can move things around and use them over and over!
I made the octave labels in brighter colors than the pentascale labels to help from getting mixed up. The pentascale labels can be found here. If you have any questions about how to print out these lables, contact me!
