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.
