Got Rhythm? “Leaf” it to me with this fun, engaging rhythm game that encourages 4 and 8 beat improvisation. Via an interactive PDF students will read an 8-beat pattern and then improvise a 4-beat pattern and then an 8-beat pattern at the end of the rhythm they read. Additionally, extension ideas for improvisation are included.
For each rhythmic element there are two different PDF games, one written in stick notation with note heads and one written in stick notation without note heads.
Additionally, there are worksheets for notation, composition and dictation included for each rhythmic concept included.
Rhythmic games include (not labeled so they will work with whatever counting system you use:
ta ti-ti (quarter, barred eighth notes)
tika-tika (sixteenth notes)
ti-tika (eighth-two sixteenth notes)
tika-ti (two sixteenth-one eighth)
tom-ti (dotted quarter-eighth)
ti-tom (eighth-dotted quarter)
tim-ka (dotted eighth-sixteenth)
