This FREE SAMPLE contains 12 Days of rhythmic fun! You'll receive 3 different pages from Level A - Part 1 along with 3 different Mix Tracks. (Additional Mix Tracks are currently being created for Level A.)
The Mix Tracks start off with a 1-2-3-4 count to set the tempo, you'll come in on the very next beat. "1-2-3-4-Go." At the beginning of the repeat, you'll hear another count of 1-2-3-4...keep beating along with that vocalized count. It's only the first 1-2-3-4 that you don't clap with.
"180 Days of Classroom Beats" has been written for the entire classroom to use all together as well as for the individual music student. While the individual music student will only need Part 1, the classroom can be split into 4 groups "beating" 4 different rhythms all together with Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4. There's a score available to help you keep the class together.
The exercises have been developed so students can gradually progress. They expose students to actual musical notation used on the staff. The exercises can be clapped, tapped, hummed, sung or played on a C instrument. Each exercise is 8 measures with a repeat. The Mix Tracks are a fun and exciting addition that students love. The tracks will help students put their new skills into practice. (Rhythm-only tracks will be made available for instrumentalists and vocalists.)
Use them for fun, in between activities, shifting gears, getting students to start thinking musically after recess, develop musical skills, expose them to musical notation or as a reward for a job well done.
