Print and laminate, or photo and paste into a Powerpoint presentation. Print on yellow paper for an eye-popping visual!
Change patterns as often as you wish. Students like to “be the teacher” and switch patterns every 30 to 60 seconds.Use for recorder warm-ups: give a pitch, students play the pitch using the selected rhythm. It’s a great way top assess your students’ understanding and performance.
