The folding staff slate is an incredibly versatile and useful tool for teaching students about the staff.

Use these materials help students learn:

  • About the staff and the difference between a line and a space
  • How bass, tenor, alto and treble clefs are placed on the staff
  • Intervals (e.g. seconds, thirds, fifths)
  • Solfege
  • To take melodic and harmonic dictation
  • Notes on the staff using various combinations of clefs
  • The position of ledger line notes in relationship to the staff
  • To read and write sight-singing patterns
  • The relationship of the notes and clefs to their instruments
  • To write key signatures, scales, triads and chords


  • One side features a grand staff.
    • The grand staff has printed clefs and a modified space between the two clefs with only enough space for the three notes found between the clefs: B, middle C and D. This makes it easier for students to learn the relationship between the two staffs.
  • The other side features a single staff, without clefs so students can choose the clef they want to use.


This set includes:

  • One double-sided slate 16 inches (40.5 cm) long and 11.5 inches (29.5 cm) wide.
  • The staff slate is cut and scored so it will fold in fourths for easier transport and to fit inside the Puppy Packet carry box. To help your slate lie flat, gently but firmly fold the folds the opposite way and smooth them with your finger.
  • Includes clear transparencies of:
    • the treble, alto and bass clefs,
    • sharps, flats, naturals, double sharps, and double flats
    • three sizes of ledger lines.
  • Each colored clef has a cute little face to subtly direct the student to the portion of the clef that designates the line note that carries the clef's letter name.
  • The clear ledger line sheets can be used when needed - just like real music. They come in three sizes: single-, double- and triple-line sizes.
  • Instructions for
    • the song: "Hello Grand Staff"
    • the game, "The 5 C's"
