Back to school, and need to get their attention when reviewing music rhythm patterns? Use this music rhythm game that includes movement with a little friendly competition. If you can beg, borrow, or steal a few feet of running space, you can play this rhythm game to help students notate rhythmic patterns in a fun way! This music rhythm activity includes reproducible files of rhythm patterns, MP3 clips of 4-beat rhythm patterns, in sets of 13, suitable for introduction in grades 1-5 (organized in folders by age-appropriate levels), directions, suggestions for diversified teaching, and answer keys. Great for the elementary music teacher, homeschool music groups, university general music methods classes, and as a fun review for secondary instrumental and vocal ensembles, this activity is a sneaky way to assess knowledge of rhythm patterns. Great back-to-school activity!

What Buyers Say:

⭐Laura: Loads of fun! Great assessment!

⭐Rachel: This was great fun, and I played this with my 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. They got really competitive. I got to see who was hearing the subdivisions of the beat accurately and could help them work on finding the strong beats versus weak beats to help break it down. We also strategized about what to listen for, so they could get better with each round. It really helped them to be better listeners. Thank you!

⭐Nicole: Great review tool!

⭐Holly: Awesome! Thanks!
