This set is loaded with eye-catching printables, engaging music literacy activities for whole-class activities or centers (measure-making based on syllabic rhythms, rhythm memory game and melody memory game), information about Chinese New Year, suggested curricular connections (literacy, character, calendar, moon phases, math), a read-aloud: "The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac," links to resources, and instructions.
Teach, practice and/or assess skills in rhythm (ta, ti-ti, rest) and melody (mi, so, la) while making joyful curricular and cultural connections! Note: Chinese New Year begins in late January or early February (2nd new moon after winter solstice) and lasts 15 days. This is also a great connection to the western New Year on January 1st.
