PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set includes 30 heart rhythm cards and directions for the circle up activity as well as suggestions for music recordings to use along with this.

Sixteenth Notes, Half notes, quarter notes, half rests, quarter rests, and eighth notes are included in this activity set.

To "Circle Up," students chant their four beat heart pattern. They then are given a four beat count from their teacher before rotating to the next card in the circle. If students are performing accurately, all students should start and end at the same time. The teacher stands in the circle to assess and support student performances. This beginning ensemble activity helps students improve beat recognition, ensemble skills, and rhythm performance.

Thought rhythms are displayed on hearts, this activity is great not only for Valentine's Day but also for any day throughout the year when rhythm performance and practice is the objective of the lesson.
