I have posted about the GPS – Grade Performance Steps for beginning band before. It is an incredible resource that students really respond well to. It gives them specific tasks, is easily trackable, and makes assessment a snap.
A colleague of mine formatted the books into individual instrument sections and you can find all of those books here.
He just recently added Year One Recorder Books to this list. These include method books and tracking forms for both Alto and Soprano Recorders.
You can find the original GPS books and many other great resources at the OMEA site.
Enjoy and happy playing!
