Are you looking for distance learning materials, to help students extend their rhythmic understanding of ti-tika/ ti-tiri (or one eighth/ two sixteenth)? This listening lesson is in Google Slides, and includes:

  • A slideshow with embedded videos, leading students through:
    • Rhythmic reading of the theme to "Fossils" from "Carnival of the Animals"
    • Exploration of the form
    • History about the composer Saint-Saëns
    • Exploration of other pieces in "Carnival of the Animals" (students get to choose another piece to listen to!)
  • Another version of the slideshow, which includes editable text (so teachers can change the "ti-tika" rhythm syllables to "ti-tiri," "ti-tiki," "ta-dimi," etc.
  • Suggestions for the set, including a free link to the lesson in Nearpod (with a few adaptations)
