Product Description
Switch out your Traditional Classroom Rhythm Instruments for PLASTIC CUPS !

I created this packet to teach beginners as young as kindergarten how to turn the cups facing down to facing up and visa versa plus to teach them how to pass a cup to the person next to them all while staying on the STEADY BEAT.
Each Song is either a 1 or 2 Measure Pattern, to help the children to concentrate on keeping a Steady Beat while they are performing.

A FUN way to improve your students Rhythm and Coordination while reinforcing Rhythms you taught.
Based on my “Rhythm: Classroom Instruments Play Along with…” Activities.
Easy to Read and Play Original Rhythmic Arrangements using Plastic Cups and Hands to the following 5 songs:

“California Dreamin’” by, The Mamas and Papas
“That’ll Be The Day” by, Buddy Holly
“Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” by, BJ Thomas
“You Can’t Hurry Love” by, The Supremes
“You Can’t Touch This” by, MC Hammer

I have found that my Rhythm Cup Activities have helped with coordination particularly for instruments that use Mallets or Sticks, Reading Traditional and Non-Traditional Music Notation, Performing on the beat and Composition Arranging. They are also FUN!
