Looking for a fun way to introduce piano and forte to your elementary music class? This is a great way to do it-- while practicing rhythm! This product includes a short introduction to the words piano and forte (comparing them to a bear and a mouse) and rhythm cards. Each card either has a bear or a mouse on it, so that students can practice saying, playing instruments, or clapping the rhythm either piano or forte. It also includes 3 different styles of posters for piano and forte. Everything is available in black and white and color.
The rhythms include ta, titi, and rest. As usual, everything is available in stick notation and regular notation.
I am personally using these to teach my kindergarten loud and soft, and my first grade forte and piano. We are pairing them with the songs Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You See?(free!), Mouse Mousie, Hickory Dickory Dock (free!), and Grizzly Bear! (free!)
