Here are very useful youtube videos for Suzuki Violin Students. These are both FAST and SLOW speed versions with  clear finger motion and posture. It is especially good for preview and helpful for self learners.

Thanks so much for posting this. I’m always looking for helpful links—especially for older beginners whose parents are present but not quite as involved. I always try to hold them off from looking at the music as long as possible which is difficult as they are already more independent. Right now I have a 5th grader who started in her school program where she is reading music a little but I’m trying to not let her do that with her Suzuki music. THANK YOU!

Block fingering featured here, with a very still hand. That is one choice.

I prefer, for a number of pedagogic reasons, to rebalance the hand on every new note, at this tempo, with walking fingers, and a lightly swinging elbow, especially when moving from 3rd finger D to 3rd f. A, so fingers are cantilevered over the needed string without twisting the wrist. This produces ease and softness in the hand and fingers, the possibility of adjusting for intonation, and to avoid tightness and tension. It’s helpful to play from the balance point!
