Need a fun way to practice steady beat with your students? This fall themed set includes 12 different actions to perform to the steady beat. You can use a favorite fall song to go along with the cards.
Suggestions for use:
Here are some ways you can use the cards:
*large group setting: switch the cards yourself (you could print and laminate, or just project them onto the board from your computer)
*small group setting: each group has a set of cards and has a leader responsible for holding up the cards. If you go this route, you could change leaders at a designated time (like when they hear the cow bell)
*freeze: they can move to the music as the card instructs, then freeze in that position when the music stops. The new movement can be introduced as soon as the music starts again.
This can also lead into a fun "copy the leader" activity!
