This is one of my all time FAVORITE rhythm lessons! The story has such a great message for students about being themselves and the repetitive nature allows plenty of opportunity to practice & play the rhythms that are set to characters in the book by Marilyn Sanders.
This lesson is LOW PREP and can be finished in an hour (two days) or can last a week or two if desired. Just print & cut and you're ready to teach.
- CHARACTER TICKETS are included for organizing students (or assign parts as you wish). I let students pick from a bucket to 'select' their character.
- 2 sets of RHYTHM CARDS
~ a fun color design
~ a printer friendly black & white version
~ both in stick notation and real notes (quarter note, quarter rest & sets of eighth notes)
- WRITING PAGE that allows students to create a new character and write their own rhythm.
- NOTE NAME ASSESSMENT
- RHYTHM IDENTIFICATION ASSESSMENT
