Would you like to do some bucket drumming with your students? Kids love this activity! And, it's perfect for teaching and practicing steady beat, reading rhythms, and encouraging creativity in composing their own "songs."

This 18-page printable pack includes:

  • 10 pages of different bucket drumming compositions using quarter notes, 2 eighth notes, and quarter rests for the kids to play.
  • 6 pages of flash cards for kids to rearrange to create their own compositions.
  • 2 pages of instructions.

I used the following symbols for each bucket drumming technique:

  • R = Right stick hits top
  • L = Left stick hits top
  • B = Both sticks hit top
  • S = Sticks hit side
  • Rim = Sticks hit rim
  • St = Sticks hit each other
