This lesson is a irreverent review of ta and ti-ti (and optional quarter rest). Silly and engaging, it's a great opportunity for students to practice reading and writing rhythms. It's a lesson I look forward to teaching every year.
I have included three versions of printable manipulatives: graphic (pickle and nose), stick, or standard notation. Send your students off with a stack of cards, and get them composing their own patterns.
Also included are two styles of worksheet: a simple rhythm ID activity, and an activity matching graphic notation to stick/standard notation. Select the activities that suit the needs of your classroom.
