Product Description
This packet includes worksheets (and coloring pages) which focus on identification of basic rhythm notation, suitable for use in a variety of grades. These worksheets should not take the place of activities which introduce rhythm concepts including moving to music, clapping, playing classroom rhythm instruments and identifying simple rhythm patterns by ear. I like to initially introduce quarter notes as walking notes, half notes as slow notes, and eighth notes as running notes for younger students. Rhythm dictation and identification of short patterns using rests and sixteenth notes are appropriate for students in grades 4 and up in addition to completion of the enclosed quizzes/worksheets. This packet also includes a rhythm composition activity for older students, with guidelines for the composition, a space to write their composition and a critique form for classmates to fill out as groups perform their compositions for the class.
