It’s October is a composing activity for early elementary and young beginning students. It has been a long time since I posted a composing activity and I have never posted one for this time of the year. The one I am posting today is easy enough for students who just started lessons.
Students can compose this on the black or white keys. Below the rhythm there are some “leaves” for students to write in finger numbers to compose their melody. Depending on the age, it might take more than one week, so take your time. Please feel free to use both hands. Each line can be labeled right or left hand. At first I had some of the stems going down, but I changed it so the young composer can make that decision!
This also helps students learn their finger numbers!
