This fantastic set of cards is a powerhouse of versatility! Print/ copy, hand out, get your kids to cut out, even add your own rhythm cells and let the fun start.
- use as flashcards - have students write the counting on the back (using whatever system you have in your classroom from #-& to ti-ti to app-le)
- use as an introduction to dictation - you clap, students 'write' down the rhythm using the cards
- put the onus on students - in pairs, one student 'writes' a rhythm then claps it and their partner 'writes' what s/he hears
- have each student store their set in a ziploc baggie with a hole punched through so you can use them anytime!
There are SO MANY ways to use these. The best description of all? Another teacher's comment: "It's so simple and so powerful. Seriously, this is the best mus ed. product ever!"
