Welcome to Note Neighborhood! Everybody has a story that they want to tell and along the way you’ll be reading, practicing, and having tons of fun!
Building Block & Composition Activity Pack
This activity set focuses around rhythmic units or "building blocks." Students will cut out the "blocks" to put together into rhythmic groupings. One of the worksheets serves as a staging area to help students put the blocks into patterns and create rhythms. By the time you are done, students will be compositions and arranging new rhythms with ease!
TWO activities are included in this set. Activity 1 allows students to use rhythmic blocks with two notes in each block (this follows the work of Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman and their research on "rhythmic bricks"). Activity 2 allows students to use one-note bricks with different time signatures.
Each worksheet/activity set includes a variety of worksheets that reinforce and teach the concept in PDF form. Every worksheet/activity set also includes a PowerPoint presentation to teach the students how to do the activity. Ta takes them through the Note Neighborhood and gives them examples of how to complete the activity with helpful hints and reminders.
If you’re someone who uses the Tika-tika rhythm syllable system you’ll want to use the Power Point tagged with a “TT” because your eighth notes are called “Ti-Ti.” If you prefer the TaKaDiMi system you’ll choose the “TK” set and you’ll meet Ta’s friend Dion so that the eighth note set says “Ta-Di.” Both rhythm syllable sets are included in this package.
This worksheet set is part of a BUNDLE! Purchase in the bundle and save!
All Note Neighborhood story sets include a story to meet the new neighbor, practice with the neighbors to ease students into the syllable system, and a practice page at the end. Most sets also include a SECOND full PPT with new stories to practice the concepts.
