Roll a Dice Rhythm
Thanks for viewing this product. I use these composition activities as a way to reinforce the teaching of note values and time signatures with my Year 7 and 8 classes.
I always teach each rhythm separately first, then combine a couple and have students clap/perform them back to me. When I know they can confidently perform each rhythm I let them have a go with the dice. I have included a set of rhythm cards for each worksheet in the resource to use in this part of the lesson. I have these cards colour coded and laminated for durability ( I have 5 different year 7 classes this year!).
I ask the students to roll the dice the number they need first, then notate it, then rehearse their rhythm, then they perform it for their neighbor, then to the teacher. I often use this activity as an assessment for the composition element of my Music class.
Depending on the class, they either simply clap the rhythms OR they are allowed to use percussion instruments of their choice to perform their rhythm on.
I use the same marking rubric for all of the different sheets!
