 What this worksheet is about:

On the keyboard of a piano, the black key to the left of a white key is a half step lower and called a flat.

To say the name of a flatted note, say the letter name first and the flat next.  For example, "B flat". To write a flatted note on a staff, place the flat sign to the left of the note.  See the following for examples.
