Looking for a fun new way to introduce half notes? Engage your kids by using Dad's old neck ties to connect quarter notes into longer sounds. Swap out Dad's neck ties for the real thing (musical tie) and lead your students towards the discovery of half notes. Reinforce concepts with a simple rhythm game (follow the leader) and four-beat rhythm patterns. Complete your lesson with a music math worksheet. Includes bonus lessons for dotted half note and whole note - a great value!
