This is a set of four worksheets that give students a chance to drill rhythm counting where an eighth note gets one beat. They start fairly easily with the more regular 6/8 and 3/8 time signatures with mostly eighth and sixteenth notes. By the fourth worksheet, they are using some unique time signatures with a mixture of eighth, sixteenth, quarter, and half notes (and rests).
I always try to start each worksheet out with a "groaner" pun. These worksheets are no different, and are entitled: "Eight on the Bottom," "Behind the Eight Ball," "Pieces of Eight," and "Eight Days a Week." I hope they invoke at least a smirk from you and your students.
I try to make several worksheets on the same topic; that way you can easily differentiate your assessment for advanced students as well as special education students (some may only have to do one or two worksheets, where more advanced students may have to do all four).
