With all six sets of Rhythm Chairs Games, students will see and feel the difference between beat and rhythm. Most importantly, they'll have fun doing it!

WHAT CUSTOMERS LOVE ABOUT THIS BUNDLE:

“Every grade loved this! Even my seventh and eighth grade thought this was a fun review. I had to rearrange the instructions a little for the older kids (no chair sharing) but it was easily adapted by having them put their hands in the air for a pair of eighth notes, one standing behind and one sitting with hands up for sixteenths, etc.”

“This activity had my students thinking critically about the number of sounds per beat/chair and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves!”

“This is a great game to reinforce how many sounds are on a beat! My students really had fun with it.”

"I had learned something very similar to this in student teaching but LOVED having the visuals to go alongside it. It made the lesson that much more effective. It's a blast for the students, too!"
