Fun for Valentine's Day or any day, this colorful heart themed notebook file for interactive whiteboard, projector or computer has 4 engaging activity pages for teaching and understanding basic note values.
Whole, half, dotted half, quarter, eighth notes and rests are introduced and practiced in 4 fun filled interactive pages. Students first listen and discover, then add and subtract notes, and finish by creating their own musical mathematical equations in colorful hearts by dragging notes onto heart shapes. The pages do not have to be used in order, but do follow a learning progression of exploration, discovery, practice and creation.
There are instrument photos and sounds to discover, problems to solve and rhythmic equations to create!
Many teaching activities only tell and explain. This one encourages students to discover the number of beats in basic rhythm note values by listening, viewing, practicing and creating.
Teaching tips and suggestions are given along the way and creative ideas from students are encouraged. Your students are sure to enjoy Valentine Math at any time of the year!
Make sure you have Notebook Software on your computer before downloading!
There is also a supplemental worksheet available: Heart Beat Music Math Worksheet
