Colorful Clef Mnemonics

I know what some of you will say: “Don’t use mnemonics! It’s terrible!”

While I do try to get students to memorize each note, or at least one starting note, sometimes a student needs the mnemonic to help them remember. (Every kid is different, right? Differentiated instruction?) When you’re in a classroom full of kids, sometimes having the mnemonic on the wall is helpful and saves time for everyone. I hope you will enjoy these mnemonic devices, complete with colors and the clef letter on the clef!

Editable versions are available, but not yet posted on TpT. Feel free to email me through TpT to get the editable version, after purchasing the original.
