This is a collection of quarter and paired eighth note rhythm patterns using Gordon rhythm syllables. I like to start off my classes with a chant about rhythm followed by some practice patterns.
You can choose to print these out and use them as flash cards or incorporate them into a smart board or power point presentation. Practicing rhythm syllables regularly, even if only for a minute at the start of class is a great way to infuse music literacy into the classroom.
This set includes fifteen different rhythm patterns featuring quarter and paired eighth notes as well as one duplicate oversized quarter note pattern. Each pattern comes in two forms, one with the rhythm syllables underneath and one without (as students gain proficiency).
Feel free to leave me any comments and/or notes! I am more than happy to make updates to help make teachers lives easier.
