Musical 4 Corners is an interactive PowerPoint music game that's great for reinforcing dotted quarter note and eighth note rhythms! This game uses Kodály stick notation.
See the links below if you prefer standard notation or save money with the stick and standard bundle.
There are also LOTS of slides so the game can be played for 5 minutes or 20.
A favorite indoor recess game at my school is "4 Corners."
I've modified the game so that each corner is a rhythm.
Instead of having an "it" person, you can just play the embedded audio clip. The students who are in the corner that matches the clip are out.
You, the teacher, or a student who is "it" can also just sing one of the melodies on the slide. There is also a timer sound file between each slide with a ticking clock sound.
The sixteenth notes are also in stick notation if you prefer!
This is a great way for students to practice audiation, rhythmic memory, and reading!
