Product Description
Music: Time Signatures RHYTHM LAYOUT

A great game for teaching time signatures. Students must decide when to put down the bar lines for the appropriate time signature. Makes a good quick game, a filler. I have purposely used the Kodaly based rhythm syllables to focus attention on the shape of each rhythm.

After spreading the rhythm cards face up on the table, decide which time signature to use, placing the appropriate time signature on the table. Players, in turn, put a rhythm card down in a line following the time signature card. When the required number of beats is laid out the next player must put down a bar line.
The game ends when all possible rhythm cards are used.

Duration: 5 -15 minutes

Variation 1: Use only one time signature until the students are very familiar with how the game works.
Variation 2: Combine time signature cards. The teacher can decide at any time when to change the time signature by putting down a new time signature card.
Variation 3: A student can decide at any time when to change the time signature by putting down a new time signature card.
