Give your students a playful strategy for learning notes stem direction. When stems are placed correctly the notes look like p for puppy and d for dog! Watch out for q or b, those are the quirky bird notes! This sorting game will help students quickly identify the correct placement for stems. It only takes a few minutes to play during lesson time and it works.
Your download will include 8 Puppy Dog cards and 8 Quirky Bird Cards with a note on the reverse side. Mix them up and ask your student to sort them into two piles: a pile of correct stems and a pile of incorrect stems. Flip them over to see if you have a stack of puppy dogs and a stack of quirky birds.
