I use Essential Elements with my beginners. I have the students say note names aloud before playing.
I have created a template for making flash cards. I make copies on white cardstock. I have my students create their own flashcards for D, E, F# and G. I collect their papers for a grade. When they are returned, the students can cut them out and they can review these at home with their parents. We add A, B, C#, D to complete the D Major Scale. When the other strings are introduced, they create flash cards for those notes too.
