This is a great bundle for working with your young musicians on half notes, half rests, whole notes, and whole rests. This bundle includes 10 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 for introducing half rest and a PDF for introducing whole rest. These PDFs will not only introduce these concepts, but also give you different ways of reinforcing this concept. Students will be able to practice using the songs they already learned in the song files, they can learn and play ostinato patterns for the songs they know, or even create their OWN ostinatos.
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!
