Piano Safari Friends Unit Maps
The following Unit Maps are provided as a free download to accompany the Piano Safari Friends Piece Cards. These provide organization and motivation for students as they work through the book.
Unit Map Instructions:
Download the Unit Map for the unit your student is working on. Print it on cardstock and tape it together or put it in a binder. When you assign a piece, the student glues the corresponding Piece Card on the appropriate place on the Unit Map. If you would like, you may put a sticker on the Piece Card as the student masters the piece, and another sticker for memorizing the piece. At each lesson, play through all the pieces on the Unit Map. This allows the student to master and review the content in each unit and lessens the focus on “passing pieces.” Upon completion of everything on the Unit Map, the student graduates to the Unit Map for the next unit.
The Alphabet Leaves correspond with activities in Piano Safari Friends.
