Rhythm Madlibs are a fun and hilarious way for students to demonstrate understanding of different rhythms. The madlib stories feature blanks which must be filled using a word matching the given rhythm for each blank.
With younger students, or those still working on the mastery of rhythms, it works well to complete this activity as a class. With older students or those more seasoned in rhythms, this activity works well completed in small groups.
Whether used as a unique review tool, “free time fun” activity, part of a sub plan, or a resource for music centers, Rhythm Madlibs are fun for students and teachers alike!
