Your middle school and general music students will enjoy creating their own rhythms using these fun roll a dice composition worksheets. Try using them as part of a center, assessment, group or individual composition activities, or even as homework.
Included in the resource are
- 5 roll a dice rhythm composition worksheets
- Marking criteria
- Rhythm cards for every rhythm used in the worksheets
Try teaching each rhythm separately first, then combine a couple and have students clap/perform them back to you. When you know they can confidently perform each rhythm, let them have a go with the dice. Included is a set of rhythm cards for each worksheet in the resource to use in this part of the lesson. Try having these cards color coded and laminated for durability (I have 5 different year 7 classes this year!).
Ask the students to roll the dice first, then notate it, then rehearse their rhythm, then they perform it for their neighbor, then to the teacher. This activity is great as an assessment for the composition element of your Music class.
Depending on the class, the students either simply clap the rhythms OR they can use percussion instruments of their choice to perform their rhythm on.
The same marking rubric can be used for all of the different sheets!
