This file includes sets of rhythm cards that can be used for multiple games, with my top 4 uses included in the file. One of the most popular is the mail game, based on the mail box game from The American Methodology. Others include the "Messenger Game" that has a cute/fun song that I use with my 1st and 2nd graders; Music four-square (to be used in centers); Clap What You Don't See. And song and game directions are included in this file.
These games are great fun for reinforcing rhythmic concepts as well as for assessments. All rhythms are written in stick notation both with and without note heads.
Rhythmic elements include: ta, ti-ti, ta rest, ta-o/half note, tika-tika, ti-tika, tika-ti, syn-co-pa, tom-ti, ti-tom, tim-ka, ti-kam.
