This is a great bundle for working with your young musicians on half notes and half rests. This bundle includes 5 song files. Each of these song files includes song lyrics, slides to show beat, slides that show rhythm, slides using familiar notes, slides introducing new note, rhythmic notation in standard rhythmic notation, an interactive game, original song with standard notation in case you do not already have this song in your repertoire, rhythm charts, and a map for songs that are from different places around the world.
This bundle also includes a PDF/powerpoint for introducing half rest. This PDF/powerpoint will introduce the half note by using all the songs your students already learned from this bundle. It then includes ostinato patterns to learn using the half note and worksheets to allow your students to compose their own ostinato patterns.
The worksheet bundle will allow students to work individually or in pairs to show you what they know and practice reading and writing these rhythms.
Finally, enjoy two more interactive games with Fun on the Farm and Bake Me a Cake. Fun on the Farm will focus on students performing these new rhythms through lots of practice. Bake Me a Cake focuses on students knowledge of how many beats these new notes gets as they add ingredients together to make the ultimate cake!
