I recently found a new app called Noteshelf, which allows me to create and save custom workbooks that I can use over and over again with my students. Now I can design a group of related pages for an even better presentation of a particular concept, plus I can keep the pages organized in handy little notebooks right on my iPad.
The app is more expensive than usual, $4.99(CAD), but it really is a fantastic tool. I use it in almost every lesson to present, review and reinforce concepts. Often I'll ask a student to do a set of pages while I correct theory homework.
I have made a little instructional video so you can see the workflow involved in creating a custom booklet. You are welcome to download and use my collection of images or maybe you'll start creating your own.
Here's a little gift to get you started with your first booklet. With Halloween coming up I like to have some spooky fun presenting 6/8 time. This correlates nicely with Helen Marlais' Write, Play, and Hear Your Theory Every Day®, Book 4 and is a great activity to do along with Christine Donkin's "Witches and Wizards" from the RCM Grade 2 Repertoire.
Here is the link to my Dropbox, the zipped folder contain 6 images to help you present and practice rhythms in 6/8 using the words "skeleton", "pumpkin" and "ghost". Save them on your computer and then sync the images to your ipad. I would recommend creating a folder called Note Shelf and keep all of your images there, it's important to keep your work flow well-labelled and organized. Then follow along with my video to make your first booklet. Good luck everyone!
Stay tuned for more booklet creations and free downloads for your iPad.
