Celebrate the joys of autumn, using Orff-based techniques to explore rhythmic poetry, extract and notate text rhythms, and compose simple rhythmic and/or melodic sequences.
I have carefully chosen words and phrases that will help your students be successful by using separate words for separate beats, for example, "falling leaves" for ti-ti ta. I've also included a variation of Keetman's building blocks for older students with the option to use eighth and sixteenth note combinations (one beat) in lieu of quarter and eighth note combinations (two beats).
17 clean, colorful pages can be projected like Power Point slides (poetry and iconic notation) and/or printed (Building Block cards and word/phrase strips). This set includes a two-page, detailed teaching guide.
Thank you for your interest and support. Enjoy!
