Celebrate Valentines Day in an educational way with these text-based rhythm explorations & composition activities! The rhythms are based on traditional candy conversation hearts. Engage your students in these fun activities while you teach skills and assess. This is set #1: ta, ti-ti, rest.
Set #2, which includes ti-ti, tiki-tiki, ti-tiki, tiki-ti, and rest is available here: Set #2
Your students will love the eye-catching slides and printable manipulatives (in both color and black-line formats). I have included a detailed teaching guide and these easy-to-use materials:
A rhythmic Valentines poem to introduce the theme, which can be performed as a rhythm canon
Layered ostinato charts for reading, chanting and playing with body percussion, drums or rhythm instruments
Cards for students to use in composing measures and combining them to create sequences and performances
Beat mats for matching rhythms in a center or partner activity
Thank you for your interest. Happy Valentines Day!
