This set of task cards and rhythm cards is great for centers, small group work, and general rhythm reading practice. Help the star people create a new song! Each star has a cool rhythm that they want you to read. Work together with the star people to make something truly unique and exciting! The task card will be your guide but you get to make the ultimate decision on what you put together!

For this center/activity just print off the flash cards that you want to use, laminate, and cut apart (there are several different levels of rhythmic difficulty). Each student can take a task card and bag of star rhythms to make the patterns suggested on the task card. Follow the task card’s instructions to complete different assignments. The star rhythms could also be used to inspire new arrangements and compositions.

This product includes:

*78 star-themed cards with rhythmic patterns. Pastel stars include easier rhythms with quarter note, quarter rest, and eight note. Bright stars include half notes, half rests, and sixteenth note pairings.

*4 separate task cards to show students different ways to group the start pieces into suggested patterns. This can inspire creativity through arranging.

*Use as individual activities, small group learning, in learning centers, or leave for a substitute teacher.
