Looking for fun ways to get your students reading rhythms? Games are always a huge win in my classroom-- especially when we are in music workstations! These Go Fish card games are easy to play (most students already know hoe to play!), fun, annnnnd allow you to assess students' reading skills. It's a win-win!
Students start with seven cards. On their turn, students pick one student and asks if they have card that the student has. If they do, they give it to the first student, and the student goes again. If they don't, they say "Go Fish" and the student draws a card. The game is over when one person runs out of cards-- but the person with the most matches wins!
Go Fish is available in both black and white and color. The file includes printable kid friendly directions (because you know once you rotate centers, everyone forgets all of the instructions!). Each rhythm occurs four times in the deck, so there are two sets of matches.
Level 1 rhythms include quarter notes, eighth notes, and quarter rests. Quarter rests are only in half of them, so you can skip those cards if your students have not learned them yet! All rhythms are available in regular notation and stick notation, to accommodate all music classrooms!
