This is a MEGA collection of my beat strip files! It combines all 10 current sets of the beat strips, including the original **Best Selling** Beat Strips for Rhythmic Notation and Dictation
and the primary sets. Also included in this set are the following files:
Christmas Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Composer Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Football Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Halloween Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Hanukkah Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Presidents Day Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Thanksgiving Dinner Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Winter-themed Beat Strips & Composition Cards
Individually these files would cost over $50. Any additional sets will be added to this bundle. Once a new set is added, previous buyers can redownload the bundle with the new set at no additional cost!
Each file is a great instructional manipulative that your students can use for notation and dictation. Using a beat strip in either 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 or unmarked meter, students can compose rhythmic patterns or take dictation from the teacher. The patterns for 2/4, 4/4 and unmarked meter can be 4 or 8 beats in length and the patterns in 3/4 meter can be 3 or 6 beats in length. Additionally, these work great for rhythmic dictation assessments!
In addition to the Beat Strips and cards, I've included a large set of cards and a "mini" set of cards that can be used for whole or small group instruction with or without the beat strips. These work extremely well for preparing unknown rhythmic elements, creating speech ostinatos (which can be easily transferred to instrument parts)
The cards come in four forms:
1. Picture only
2. Picture with text (label)
3. Picture with text & rhythm
4. Picture with rhythm
The rhythms are written in both stick notation and rhythmic notation with note heads. Rhythms included in most sets are:
* "ta" or quarter note
* "ti-ti" or eighth note
* "tika-tika" or sixteenth notes
* "ti-tika" or "ti-tiri" or eighth-sixteenth-sixteenth notes
* "tika-ti" or "tiri-ti" or sixteenth-sixteenth-eighth notes.
** additionally some sets have more advanced rhythms and two beat patterns.
This is a great assessment tool for all grade levels!!
