This PowerPoint contains activities for various stages of music curriculum. It has:
Bee hives to tap the beat.
Bee hives with words that can flash to the rhythm.
Bee hives that can be split in half to help students identify one sound vs. two on a beat.
Bee hives with words as well as an icon for a long sound and another for a short sound.
Bee hives with words and long and short symbols that morph into only having long and short symbols.
Bee hives with quarter notes and eighth notes.
Bee hives with quarter notes and eighth notes that can disappear to aid in memorization.
The powerpoint uses Music Ed Font and you will need it on your computer in order to make these files work correctly. Directions on how to use the animations are found on the notes sections of the applicable slides.
I have tried to make them in such a way that they will be very useful on an interactive whiteboard as well as a normal powerpoint.
The PDF file contains:
Beat sheets with beehives
Beat sheets with beehives with words
Beat sheets with long and short rhythms
Beat sheets with beehives with the rhythms within
Manipulatives for students to cut out and assemble their own rhythms with the beehives or write their rhythms.
