These interactive PDFs ARE all they’re cracked up to be and your students will do an “egg-cellent” job reading rhythms in these engaging rhythm games! Simply play the PDF as you would a PowerPoint, click on the links that will guide you to the different egg patterns. These can be played as a whole group reading exercise, as a game in which the class is divided into groups and they try to successfully read the most eggs or via iPads or laptops in small groups. Additionally, you can try having the students play the rhythms on non-pitched percussion instruments or they can play the rhythms while improvising melodies on the barred instruments.
These can be used anytime of year in correlation with song literature, ie. “Chicken on a Fencepost,” “Chicks and Geese,” “Shanghai Chicken,” “Who Stole My Chicken and My Hens?,” to name a few…..
