These cards are perfect for students to compose! Use in centers or with a whole class. Each card includes a picture, the rhythm symbol, and word. The rhythms included in this file are whole, half, quarter, eighth pair, sixteenth, "syncopa," eighth +sixteenth, sixteenth +eighth notes; and whole, half, and quarter rest. Some rhythmic symbols have more than one bug option--you can include those for your students or choose your favorite! Cards can be printed with or without the colored background.
