I'se the B'y Book 4 The Windsongs Series For Recorder, Orff or Kodaly Programs By Berthe Kulich and Joe Berarducci Book 54 pages
Progressive method for soprano recorder - for individual or classroom instruction. This is the fourth in a sequential series of six books leading from the first steps in recorder playing to musical literacy and the threshold of consort playing. Each book in the series serves as a workbook as there are tasks and exercises for the children to complete.
Each book builds upon the last, adding the notes in a logical sequence. The series uses sol-fa syllables and rhythm syllables (ta, ti ti, etc.)and leads to reading staff notation. There are places for students to draw notes and other written activities. A combination of both English and French songs which draw on the rich heritage of Canadian folk songs are used.
For ages 6 to 12.
Range of notes: B, A, G, E, D, C, high C, high D; adds high E, F, F#.

I used this series when I taught elementary school and really liked it. I have been looking for it for my private studio for a while. I started the Grade 2 (age 7) in Book 1 and went right through to book 6 by the time they were in Grade 6. Great series!
