Product Description
We are taking the Christmas music (that started right playing on the radio stations right after Halloween) and using it this week for rhythm dictation. Using some familiar Christmas songs, the students will write the rhythms symbolically. Beginner students use chips to represent the different rhythms.

If I clap one half note and two quarter notes then the student would put a chip on the 1st, 3rd and 4th beat. For more advanced students I have them write the correct rhythm in the ornament. I use a page protector and a dry erase marker so that I can use the sheet over and over again. You can use whatever song you like, but here are some songs with simple rhythms:

Jingle Bells
Up on the House Top
Jolly Old St. Nicholas
Little Drummer Boy
Here Comes Santa Clause
I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause
O little town of Bethlehem
