It’s the most wonderful time of year and these games are perfect for use during the holidays! You can practice rhythms while making cultural connections to the Nutcracker (please note, these games do not teach the ballet or story of the Nutcracker but practice rhythmic reading). Additionally, there are opportunities to practice partwork while using these PDFs. Please run these PDFs through Acrobat/Adobe.
