This is a new material that is in current development. I have added a new tab in the materials section with bigger pictures and will add games and pictures there once I have the mats and chits printed.
Each scale will have two mats---one for the lower tetrachord and one for the upper tetrachord. There will be a guide card for each scale which will have theory and games on the back side. Accompanying the Tetrachord Mats will be the Martyrie chits.
Above you can see the lower and upper tetrachord mats for the Diatonic scale as well as the guide card. Each mat will be 2" by 10". The gray squares are 1.25" square. Students will place the Martyrie chits (shown below) on the gray boxes to build the martyries. I hope to include enough tetrachord mats and chits for 3 students to work on the same scale at once. The chits have a yellow back so that they can be used independent of the mats to play games.
The mats are pretty colorless. Where would you add color? Should I make the gray boxes yellow so that it matches the chits? I hope to get this material printed in the next month so please give me your suggestions!
SAHM by day; ByzB curriculum developer by night. My career was in teaching: kindergarten, first grade, bilingual reading, Suzuki piano, and Music Mind Games. Now I paint icons and spend lots of time making materials on the computer. My greatest joy is directing my students in their learning. This blog documents the process and provides a space for my other ramblings as well.
