Down, set, hike! Your students will score big with this is a football version of my **Best Selling** Beat Strips for Rhythmic Notation and Dictation
and it will be a fun addition to your classroom instruction any time of year, especially when your students are excited for “the big game”! It encourages composition and additionally can be used for dictation and notation all the while connecting to an interest of all of your students, including those football fans!
This file is a great instructional manipulative that your students can use for notation and dictation. Using a beat strip in either 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 or unmarked meter, students can compose rhythmic patterns or take dictation from the teacher. The patterns for 2/4, 4/4 and unmarked meter can be 4 or 8 beats in length and the patterns in 3/4 meter can be 3 or 6 beats in length. Additionally, these work great for rhythmic dictation assessments!
In addition to the Beat Strips and cards, I've included a large set of cards and a "mini" set of cards that can be used for whole or small group instruction with or without the beat strips. These work extremely well for preparing unknown rhythmic elements, creating speech ostinatos (which can be easily transferred to instrument parts)
The cards come in four forms:
1. Picture only
2. Picture with text (label)
3. Picture with text & rhythm
4. Picture with rhythm
The rhythms are written in both stick notation and rhythmic notation with note heads. Rhythms included are:
* "ta" or quarter note
* "ti-ti" or eighth note
* "tika-tika" or sixteenth notes
* "ti-tika" or "ti-tiri" or eighth-sixteenth-sixteenth notes
* "tika-ti" or "tiri-ti" or sixteenth-sixteenth-eighth notes.
This is a great assessment tool for all grade levels!!
