Looking for a new way to do compose with your little ones? Want a fun and easy activity with body percussion? This lesson uses iconic notation to read and compose body percussion patterns!
This lesson contains 1 PowerPoint with reading & composing activities, and 1 accompanying Worksheet. I use the PowerPoint with my whole class, then use the Worksheet to assess individual students and check for understanding, but you can use it however you like! I've even left the PowerPoint as an EDITABLE FILE, so that you can change and edit slides as needed to work best for your classes.
Here's what's included:
-Directions for the steps I use with this product in my own classroom
-Body Percussion Key - 4 icons/symbols and body percussion movements
-8 (4-beat) Patterns - to read & perform
-4 (4-beat) box charts - to create your own patterns as a class
-4 (8-beat) box charts - to create your own EXTENDED patterns as a class
8-beat box chart for your students to create their own patterns.
Print in color OR black & white using the suggested movements, or use the third option of black & white where your students can write in their own movements!
