Hey Amanda, I would suggest checking out my beginner violin lessons which guides you through a beginner lesson book (you can download the book on any lesson page right of the video). Many of the songs you will know by ear, which will allow you to understand how they correspond on the staff. I would suggest making flash cards for each of the notes on the staff that range from open D to D on the A string. These are 8 notes that make up one octave, and are what you focus on in the first 5 lessons of the book. If that doesn’t make sense let me know.
