“Half Note” Nutcracker Rhythm Dash: Rhythm Relay Race is one of my students’ favorite music activities! Students take turns listening for rhythms and retrieve the corresponding rhythm card as fast as they can. You can keep score as appropriate or play for fun! This game serves as a tool for identifying and performing rhythms in the practice stage. It can be played as a whole group or small group activity. In the learning stage, the teacher takes the lead. However, once the students are proficient, they can easily lead the game! Once the students are familiar with the procedures, they can perform this game as a small group station!
This set includes half note (ta-a/to-o) rhythms on every card. Other rhythms found in this set are quarter notes (ta), eighth notes (ti-ti) and quarter rests. These rhythm race cards include noteheads and work with numerous styles of counting and teaching!
This file is part of a money-saving bundle: Nutcracker Rhythm Dash (BUNDLE).
This file contains:
• Teacher Notes and Game Directions
• 8 Team Cards
• 1 Rhythm List
• 128 rhythm cards (16 different rhythm cards per team)
This file prints well on 8.5”x 11” (letter size) cardstock and can be laminated for extra durability. I recommend using 5 mil. thermal laminating sheets to make your game last for years. You can print them in the bright colors as in the file or black and white. If printing in black and white, consider printing the rhythm cards onto different colors of cardstock, so the students can easily organize the cards.
