Beautiful original illustrations and easy rhyming text teach basic kodaly rhythms while entertaining your young students or your at home children. Can view as a hard copy picture book style or use as a powerpoint presentation.
Little Note, a baby deer is having a party and inviting all his forest friends while chanting rhythms along the way.
I've used this as a power point presentation where I read aloud the story and sing the rhythms and have the students echo the rhythms as we go along through the story. They love the colorful pictures and remember the rhythms and the story weeks later as we work on rhythms again in other contexts. I've used this with my kindergarteners and first graders and it would work very well with preschoolers too.
