Included in this set are 10 ostinato word/picture cards and 10 corresponding rhythm cards. These can be printed back to back, or can be used for match up.
Rhythms included use quarter notes, quarter rests, eighth notes, half notes, and half rests. Pick and choose rhythmic cards that work for your class, if they do not know all of the rhythms included.
Directions and ideas for use are included.
Students can chant the rhythm patterns repeatedly as ostinato and then the ostinato patterns can be arranged and layered by students. These can be performed with text, with rhythm, or with instruments in an ensemble. Students can use them to composer or arrange their own pieces.
These can also be used for matching games. Suggestions for use in your classroom are included.
