You and your students will love these engaging activities! This set will help you and your students explore Halloween words and phrases, using Orff-based techniques to explore embedded rhythms in poetry, extract & notate text rhythms, and compose simple rhythmic and/or melodic sequences.
I have carefully chosen words and phrases that will help your students be successful. I've also included a variation of Keetman's building blocks for older students with the option to use eighth and sixteenth note combinations (one beat) in lieu of quarter and eighth note combinations (two beats).
13 printable pages include a teaching guide for three activities, an easy rhythmic chant with body percussion and canon options, Building Block cards, and word/phrase strips.
Please remember to leave positive feedback or email me with questions, suggestions or requests.
Thank you for your interest and support. Enjoy!
