A short reading activity with an accompanying fun hands on activity that can be done in a whole class setting, a music centre or in partners. This is a printable work sheet with a great introductory activity to help students understand and experience both visually and kinesthetically, the difference between beat and rhythm. A challenge and an optional performance opportunity are also included. Students should have a working knowledge of syllables and know the words to The Wheels on The Bus. This lesson includes a fill in the blank review sheet, and a student self assessment.
